Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga recorded by the sage Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta, an ancient manuscript said to contain lists of many different groupings of asanas, as well as highly original teachings on vinyasa, drishti, bandhas, mudras, and philosophy. Ashtanga yoga literally means "eight-limbed yoga, " as outlined by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. To perform asana correctly in Ashtanga yoga, one must incorporate the use of vinyasa and tristhana. Yogi Sidharth, a disciple of Shree Shree Ravi Sankar, was born in Eastern India in 1988. Before leaving his profession to follow the spiritual path, Sidharth was a recent graduate working in telecommunications. In 2008, he began practicing and perfecting various styles of hatha yoga, such as Sivananda, Iyenger and Ashtanga, digesting and assimilating the strengths and benefits of each. In 2010, Sidharth completed both 200 and 300 hour yoga teacher training courses, becoming a traditional hatha yoga instructor. In 2012, he traveled south to Mysore, India, to become a certified ashtanga yoga instructor and in the same year Sidharth began managing and teaching at Ashtanga Yoga Rishikesh School, India.
