Back Garden 8 Eka Pada Sirsasana

Matt performing back garden 8 Eka Pada Sirsasana. This sequence of postures are taken from the Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Sequence and Advanced A+B Sequences, eight in total to represent the ‘8 Limbs’ of Ashtanga Yoga. Guruji (Pattabhis Jois) would say that in order to practice the other ‘limbs’ of the Ashtanga discipline  it is important for students to undertake the practice of the  third  limb ‘Asana’ .  Asana will make the body and mind strong in preparation for study and practice of the other limbs.
