Most yoga in the West has developed from more physically-based forms of yoga and include Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, Vinyasa flow, and their influences can also be seen in Anusara yoga. These have largely come out of Kirshnamacharya inner power during the last century.
Ayurvedic Inner outer Yoga is very different in that it deals with one's whole being and teaches in a slow and vey systematic way. It is ideal for beginners, as it starts very gently, but untilises awareness of the breath from the start, and works with many layers of the self.
People feel the benefits of the practice and relaxation immediately, and the physical benefits develop as the postures gradually get stronger as you adjust to the practice.
It is also an excellent form of yoga for the more experienced yoga practitioners who realise there is much more to yoga than the physical practice. It is an ideal way to embark more deeply on the inner journey to self, connect with one's deeper wisdom, and prepare the mind for meditation and realising our higher potential.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world's most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurvedia is a science of life. It offers a body of wisdom to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.
