Ashtanga Yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, standing poses, and a seated sequence that includes deep hip openers. —a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs.
