The Ashtanga yoga system or eight limb yoga system of Patanjali is the most famous and complete yoga system. Patanjali introduced this system in the famous yoga text Patanjali Yoga Sutra around 3000 years ago.

Patanjali was well versed in all the existing yoga styles and he saw a great confusion going on everywhere as all the principles of yoga were scattered in all different books. Patanjali decided to bring them all together in a cohesive manner so as to develop a perfect and non fallible system. It means if one follows all the eight limbs as mentioned by Patanjali he starts seeing the spiritual growth.

This system also predicts the outcome of the practices mentioned by Patanjali. Great masters of past and future appreciated this system all the time and if told that this is the complete set of guidelines and roadmap for learning yoga from the first step to the highest level of Self realization.
