OM

I bow to the lotus feet of our great teachers,
who uncovers our true self and awakens happiness like a Shaman in the Jungle he brings total complete well-beeing.
 He can even heal the most awful poision of conditioning and illusion.The upper body of human shape, carrying
a mussel horn (original tone), a discus (infinity) and a sword (power of differentiation) having 1000 bright heads,
I bow to Patanjali.

OM

A profound part of the tradition is the opening mantra that starts every Ashtanga practice. We salute this ancient tradition and Patanjali. Before we begin each Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice, we recall this age-old tradition and bow to it with a Mantra. We especially honour Patanjali. He is considered one of the most important reference points on the philosophical and spiritual path of Ashtanga Yoga.
