Course Overview

This 3.5 hours long, 12 lessson course, covers the entire Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. Gregor  analyses the many intricate anatomical details of all postures of the Primary Series. The focus is on breaking down the various phases of entering and exiting the postures into their constituents. Performing postures safely while understanding which anatomical actions will get us deep into the asanas will prevent unnecessary energy expenditure. Through inducing precision this format also achieves that conditioning and emotions lodged in bodily tissue are released, preparing us for the higher limbs of pranayama and meditation.
