Saluting the Sun: The Importance of Surya Namaskara

Ekam Inhale Arms rise, hands forming a prayer, eyes focused upon saluting palms. Dve Exhale. The prayer is offered forward, the body surrendering to bow down into a surrendering forward fold. And so it continues, this oscillating flow of openings and offerings, salutations and prostrations that form the morning ritual of Ashtanga practitioners throughout the world. A series of breath-linked movements, the Surya Namaskara, or Sun Salutations, is the physical invocation that opens the Ashtanga yoga series. All practitioners, from very beginners...

One Breath At A Time: The Practice of Vinyasa

“O yogi, do not do asana without vinyasa.” Central to the physical practice of Ashtanga yoga, these words of the sage Vamana are core to the teachings of this dynamic practice. Vinyasa, for the Ashtanga yoga practitioner, is seen as an integral part of the physical practice, as vital as asana itself. But what exactly is vinyasa? And why is it treated with such vehement importance? The definition of vinyasa Like many words in Sanskrit, vinyasa is a term with more than one definition. Breaking down the word, we find “nyasa,” a term...

A Life in Yoga: Karma Yoga and the Ashtanga Yoga Practice

The Inevitability of Action Welcome to the karma-cycle.

Arriving on the planet in human birth, and deciding that it’s time to exit the cycle, one might think to simply abstain. Choose inaction, refuse to play the game, and break free. Right? Wrong. Unfortunately for the aspiring yoga practitioner, action in inevitable. Even choosing to not act is an action in itself....

Seva Yoga in Nicaragua: Seeking God in Service

“Service is the first step along the spiritual path.” – Sri Sathya Sai Baba Through yoga, we seek God. God within, and God without, in any form, with any name. Yogic philosophy doesn’t care what face you give to God, which religious texts you find it in, or whether you believe in a personified God at all.

For the yoga practitioner, there is...

The Ashtanga Pilgrimage: Journey to Mysore

Mysore. It’s the name of both a style of Ashtanga yoga practice and the place in which it originated.
