Aṣṭāṅga Yoga As It Is

By Matthew Sweeney

Aṣṭāṅga vinyāsa yoga is a system of postures connected by the breath. It combines sequential, flowing movements with focused internal awareness. Through self practice and self observation a non-judgemental attitude is cultivated. This peaceful quality is the vehicle by which the body and mind are observed, purified and transcended.

Containing Matthew’s recognisable photographic sequences showing the vinyāsa movements and breath between each posture, Matthew’s book also includes information on the philosophy, history and techniques of Ashtanga Yoga. I remember when I first saw the photographic sequences of Matthew’s practice when I was beginning to learn the primary series and wondered how I would every remember it all, but at the same time being inspired by the undeniable grace and ease captured in the photographs.
