The Benefits of Ashtanga Yoga - The Ancient Yogic Practice

Ashtanga is the most ancient form of Yoga that focuses on movement and breath to a very disciplined degree. The psychological and mental benefits are notable even after one yoga session…

From academia to the clinical world and entrepreneurial space, I have pushed myself in every area of my life, despite my rollercoaster of a journey with Lupus. I have a lot of people in my life to thank for their support, but Ashtanga Yoga is truly what has gotten me out of my head, through my limiting beliefs and victim mindset, so that I could rise above the difficult times.

Dive into the world of Ashtanga Yoga with me, an age-old journey woven through the 8 Limbs of Yoga that have totally changed my life. It's more than just a workout; it's a silent, meditative voyage from the chaos of our minds into the sanctity of our bodies. I've felt my own focus and awareness sharpen, and a kind of peace settle in that's hard to explain until you feel it for yourself. 

If you need to get out of your head and into the present moment, Ashtanga is for you. During this episode, I go into the history of this ancient practice as well as the benefits for your wellbeing. After listening, you’ll discover:
🌿 What Ashtanga Yoga really is and where it comes from
🌿 What this ancient practice can do for your mental and physical well-being
🌿 Ways you can start practicing, whether you are an advanced yogi or beginner
