Ashtanga Yoga means Eight limbed Yoga. Asana is the Third of these Limbs. Through this practice of linking asanas through prescribed vinyasas (movements) one can correct imbalances, strengthen the system & establish health.
In this introduction Raphael will focus on the standing postures of the Primary Series as taught by Shri Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India.
Deep, even breathing known as UJJAYI and steady eye gazing or DRISTI will be taught as well as the philosophy & understanding of the other limbs.
