Ashtanga Yoga has profound effects on our bodies and minds. It purifies our internal organs and brings health, strength, increased stamina and vitality. It makes our minds calm and steady, and gradually draws our experience away from the field of sense objects, that our consciousness may rest in the Self.
A dedicated Ashtanga yoga practise gradually helps us to stand and live in our Truth; to understand the nature and continuum between body and mind. It helps us to understand what this very life is: who we are, what we are doing here, and where we are going.
