I think it is safe to say this website — cocos.co.in — isn’t one you’ll need to be checking in on regularly. But its definition of Ashtanga caught my attention — and made me laugh:
Another term given to Ashtanga Yoga is Power Yoga. In just a few days after it was developed, it immediately gained popularity as being one the best and most well-rounded work out sessions for yoga. In addition to the regular premises of yoga, it also enhances the practitioner’s stamina and strength, while the other kinds of yoga put more focus on relaxation, mobility, and breathing.
Given the myriad efforts to pull apart Ashtanga’s history and roots, I’m super drawn to an alternative universe where Ashtanga gets developed and a few days later, boom!, is super popular everywhere.
The piece goes on in a similar, and similarly funny, vein. Worth noting: Even in that alternative universe, Ashtanga is hard.
