K Pattabhi Jois: Once we practice yoga, we come to realize its ananda [bliss]. If we practice the science of yoga, which is useful to the entire human community and which yields happiness both here and hereafter -- if we practice it without fail, we will then attain physical, mental, and spiritual hap Helpful tips and photos of asanas.
If we practice the science of yoga, which is useful to the entire human community and which yields happiness both here and hereafter -- if we practice it without fail, we will then attain physical, mental, and spiritual happiness, and our minds will flood toward the Self. Antah shaucha means viewing everything and every being as a friend, and treating all with affection maitri. This means engaging the mind with the supreme feeling that all are our friends, and considering everything to be a reflection of God.
Such focusing of our attention on the Supreme Being is antah shaucha. Regulating the breathing stabilizes the mind and makes it firm. In this scientific age, we accept only what we see and reject what we do not. We make no effort to perceive the Universal Self, which is the Indweller that witnesses all actions, that is the cause of the creation, sustenance, and destruction of the universe, and that is of the nature of consciousness.
It would be a great blessing of if all people, men and women, were to achieve the practice of the limbs of yoga, which gives happiness both here and hereafter, and is the fulfillment of human experience.
When the mind is not attached to things, such as the objects of the senses, it will be able to dissolve itself into the Self. This is what is known as the state of jivanmukti [liberation while in the present life]. An aspirant must carefully learn the rules of pranayama first, and avoid haste. Nayam atma balahinena labhyah Na medyaya na bahunashrutena.
One quarter of the other half should be given over to water and the remaining quarter to the movement of air. Moderation in regards to eating, sleeping, and the like is thus important to follow. If our country is to produce robust, intellectual and long-lived children who believe in God, we must, in my humble opinion learn ways to control our sense organs.
Limiting the number of children is necessary. Birth control by natural means helps us to lead long, happy lives, while it, at the same time, nourishes our intellects and frees us from the scourge of disease. Jul 10, Laura Zurowski rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is the heart of the Ashtanga yoga primary series; the historical documentation of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois' curriculum for asana practice and his overview and explanation of the 8-limb path.
There are newer Ashtanga books written by some of Jois' long-time students that explore in greater detail different areas of the practice, but this book is considered the original source. If you are looking to incorporate Ashtanga yoga principles both on and off the mat, you will need, and want, to own This book is the heart of the Ashtanga yoga primary series; the historical documentation of Sri K.
If you are looking to incorporate Ashtanga yoga principles both on and off the mat, you will need, and want, to own this book and revisit it frequently.
The photos of the primary series postures are refreshing in that Guruji isn't inhumanly "perfect" in every one! What a lovely reminder that the practice is more than just the execution of a shape, with positioned limbs and flexed muscles, it's about the intention you bring to the mat and allow to develop with consistent attention. Sep 09, Pake Hall rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wonderful explanations of the asanas of the primary serie and put into a traditional context.
I'm very inspired to continue to explore the Ashtanga Yoga tradition and be fully present in every breath while doing so And maybe take some ghee with that: Basic and needed! Wish I'd read this much sooner. A must for ashtangis.
Bears rerererereading. A2 book group selection, Dec Aug 26, Sarah rated it it was amazing. I would suggest using it in conjunction with Iyengar's Light on Yoga as the latter expands on the description and benefits in general as well as contain more asanas that were added later on to the Ashtanga sequence.
This book was also the reference material for my TT course. I fell so madly in love with the practice of yoga and the Yoga Mala was a requirement in my yoga teacher training and I read this entire book in three days!
I always encourage anyone who has questions and is curious about Ashtanga to read this book! An absolute necessary read for anyone who wants to start a practice in general. Apr 12, Sarah rated it really liked it.
A great book if you are already practicing and want to hear about the philosophy behind the primary series from the Guruji himself. If looking for something instructional as a beginner then the asana descriptions may seem a little abstract. Otherwise a lovely read: Wisdom A jewel , worth more than gold or money, the road to enlightenment.
This is a way to live our lives. Aug 15, Nsharil rated it it was amazing. An essential read especially for those who have a daily Ashtanga practice. Valuable for both teachers and students and is one the books I refer to time and time again.
I started my Ashtanga practice formally October of Before that, I was doing a lot of vinyasa power yoga and looking for a home. Well, I found my true home in Ashtanga. I have to say that I feel deflated after reading this book and here's why: I had put so much expectation into what this book was going to tell me about Ashtanga and the way of the practitioner and inspiration on how I started my Ashtanga practice formally October of I had put so much expectation into what this book was going to tell me about Ashtanga and the way of the practitioner and inspiration on how to keep the practice going strong and perhaps even more behind his own famous saying of "Do your practice and all is coming.
The writing itself is not very clear and has not been edited very well, but the content was what shocked me the most. For one, I can't get over the obsession that Jois has about practioner's not engaging in sexual activities, even with their spouses, and all that talk around losing bodily fluids if at the wrong hour of the night or day can cause so much trouble in your practice.
And you know what, if this point was made once or even twice, I would have paid even more respect to it even if I chose not to agree to it, but the hammering of this point throughout the book was just annoying. Another point was about the focus on men, even though he throws in that both men and women can practice Ashtanga, it is quite obvious that at the time of his writing, he was addressing a male practitioner, or in his words, an "aspirant" of yoga.
The rest of this may only interest you if you are an Ashtanga practionner: The primary series or yoga chikitsa as it is taught today by Sharath Jois's grandson and others in the community has changed from the series he teaches.
There are some poses that are not even present in the Yoga Mala such as reverse Trikonasana. Also he says breathe as many times as possible. As we now know, the recommended of breaths in each asana is 5. The explanation of the poses is fine, but it's really hard to read these descriptions. They are very mechanical.
For me, it is very hard to grasp or remember this type of information. The benefits of each pose are also explained right after the pose. It's a little hard to stay coordinated as you read the book because the picture of the pose is not on the same page as the description of it, oh well. Also I found it interesting that there was very little if any! Overall, perhaps I am glad that I read this book.
I still love and respect Pattabhi Jois, and I feel indebted to him for bringing this amazing system of yoga to the western world by his tireless teachings. I will be referencing this book on occasion, and I do believe that yoga when practiced properly can be the way of healing and happiness. One of the great yoga figures of our time, Jois brought Ashtanga yoga to the West a quarter of a century ago and has been the driving force behind its worldwide dissemination. Based on flowing, energetic movement, Ashtanga and the many forms of vinyasa yoga that grow directly out of it--have become the most widespread and influential styles of practice in the United States today.
Mala means "garland" in Sanskrit, and Yoga Mala --a "garland of yoga practice"--is Jois's distillation of Ashtanga. He first outlines the ethical principles and philosophy underlying the discipline and explains its important terms and concepts. Next he guides the reader through Ashtanga's versions of the Sun Salutation and its subsequent sequence of forty-two asanas, or poses, precisely describing how to execute each position and what benefits each provides. Brought into English by Eddie Stern, a student of Jois's for twelve years and director of the Patanjali Yoga Shala in New York City, Yoga Mala will be an indispensable handbook for students and teachers of yoga for years to come.
