Kaivalyadhama teaches and follows the Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali, the pioneer who laid down the foundation for traditional yoga.
Patanjali, who was the first to standardize and codify Yoga practice, drew up eight steps for silencing the mind: restraints, observances, postures, breath control, withdrawal, slowing of mind, contemplation and meditation.
These eight steps systematically wash away the impurities of the mind, making it progressively pure and cleansed.
