The term Ashtanga yoga originates in Patan- jai’s Yoga Sutras that describe the eight-limbs of Ashtanga yoga. These include yama ( socially oriented moral observances), niyama (personally oriented observances), asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense withdrawl), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (peace). The actual asana practice of Ashtanga yoga comes from the life and teaching of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who dedicated his life to the dissemination of this ancient lineage.
