The Ashtanga Yoga method is built around the ‘Mysore Style’ class, so named because yoga was taught this way by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India, and continues to be taught this way in traditionalAshtanga Yoga schools around the world.


Intro to Second Series 12pm-3

The second series of Ashtanga yoga is a sophisticated sequence that mixes elements of flexibility and strength. Named Nadi Sodhana or Intermediate Series, the aim of this series is to work on the nervios system and the more subtle aspects of human body.

In this workshop we will explore the first part of the second series where backbends are the main work. This workshop is intended to students who are already practicing the second series but want to deepen their understanding of these asanas and also for students who are in the transition from primary to second series and are curios about the asanas that will be working on soon.
