Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: the inner practice
Ashtanga vinyasa yoga …. a method of intense life. Our relationship with our mat is unique and personal. There is our life there. This is why every ashtangi has got his own mat. Mat that, for those who really practise ashtanga and knows it well (not just the memory sequence), should not be trampled by anyone: it is as if they had stepped on my life. Only our teacher is authorized because he/she helps us, with the intention of adjustment, to overcome our obstacles of life through asanas. We are all together overtake and win/destroying the poisons that the snake (samsara halahala) crushes and gives us. But we … every morning … we return to our mat to fight. Every day our practise will be different but we will always be there …. on our mat to smile because we are stronger than the snake.
