Tristhana is an important aspect of any Ashtanga yoga practice and yoga practice. The word tristhana literally requires three attention. We are talking about three important places: posture, breath and look. The three are practiced together and cleansed of the body, the nervous system and the mind
Asanas (postures) and vinyasa form the physical practice of yoga. These components give the body flexibility and strength and help in cleaning
To use the asanas correctly, lanes or energy locks should be used. In the ashtanga-yoga vinyasa practice, the two lower wings should be used, ie the mula bandha and the uddiyana bandha (upward stomach closure). Bandhas are also useful for pranayam (breathing techniques). These are described in detail in two specific scriptures – "Hatha Yoga Pradipika" and "Gheranda Samhita" and with the aim of preventing the escape of energy from the body. Bands are an important gateway to the spiritual plane because when we practice tristhana, our consciousness is focused only on the physical plane and on the asana to focus on breath, gaze and energy locks. Therefore, we open the spiritual energies within us.
"Rechaka" is the exhalation of breathing in Sanskrit, and "Puraka" is inhalation. In any yoga practice, the rechaka and the purca should be smooth and equal. Krishna Pattabhi Jois taught that this constant breathing helps cleanse the nervous system. He pointed out the fact that continuous and slow breathing not only reduces the rate of breathing but also reduces heart rate. This helps to achieve balance and relaxation of the nervous system.
Drishti (gaze) is the point where you pay attention to yoga practices. With a certain point, your consciousness can focus on silence and bring you into the state of meditation, which is ultimately the practice of yoga. Patanjali sage teaches yoga chitta vritti nirodha, or yoga is the elimination of the fluctuations of the mind. Focusing on consciousness brings the mind to silence at one point. The yoga ashtanga system teaches nine drishtists. These are the nose, the point between the eyebrows, the navel, the thumb, the hands, the legs, up, right and left.
The tristhana method allows yoga to develop sensory control and to develop in-depth awareness. Yogi becomes more intrinsic and the & # 39; pratyahara & # 39; or moving toward sensual withdrawal. Yogi knows his emotions and the inner functions of the mind. While staying in Trishana during the Vinyasa practice of the Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga improves body stability and mind stability
