Why you should join Asan Yoga School?
Asan Yoga gives a unique combination of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Mysore style with a great precision and alignment of Iyengar Yoga. Apart from Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga we have also included Hatha Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, Yin Yoga and introduction to therapeutic approach of Yoga in our curriculum of Yoga Teacher Training courses in India. This creates a foundation of multi-style Yoga Teacher Training india which provides a holistic knowledge of different yoga traditions. On the successful completion of 200 hr or 300 hr YTTC our students are able to adjust their teaching according to the level of their yoga clients, because of their training and knowledge in different styles of yoga.
The vision is hidden in the name of Asan Yoga itself. The word Asan has two meanings; it means easy and it also means posture.
Ashtanga Yoga has 8 limbs. Asan is the 3rd limb of Ashtanga Yoga which means ‘posture’. Patanjali describes Asan, posture in his book called Yoga Sutra, ‘That which is comfortable and steady is Asan’. Sanskrit aphorism says, ‘Sthiram Sukham Asanam’. Asan Yoga provides the opportunity to practice this vision for all Yoga practitioners and teachers. They can make their practice so easy with the use of Yoga Props and right guidance that they find steadiness and comfort in their physical postures and mental well-being. The vision of our school merges well with yoga for all irrespective of whether the person is young, old, sick, injured or having some physical limitations. Even though the Mysore style of Ashtanga Yoga is physically challenging, the strong base of Iyengar yoga helps the practitioner to modify the poses with the correct use of props according to their physical limitations.
Our Tradition: Combination of Astanga Vinyasa Mysore style and Iyengar yoga:
The two disciples of T. Krishnamacharya became famous in today’s era named K. Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar. Pattabhi Jois kept the tradition as it was absorbed from his guru after devoting many years whereas B.K.S Iyengar took the same practice to a different level with the use of props, focus on alignment, injury free yoga and made yoga available to all. Asan yoga combined the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequence of Mysore style with Iyengar yoga which is a development of appropriate use of props for the alignment of a posture. This unique combination is beneficial to all and allows one to practice injury free yoga. Giving gratitude to both the Masters, Asan Yoga has aimed to create harmony in your practice.
