Ashtanga yoga is known for its traditional, rigorous asana practice, and Ashtangis are some of the most dedicated and hardworking people you’ll ever know. And here’s just one proof of that.
Meet Alexandros — he started practicing yoga when he was 38 and this video shot in Athens, Greece shows him doing a yoga demo while we listen to how he started on his yoga journey and how he found that mind-body union in Ashtanga yoga.
Filmed by the amazing Alessandro Sigismondi, this is one video that’s sure to inspire yogis of all levels and backgrounds to persevere in their practice (or give Ashtanga yoga a shot!).
