Led Primary Series – Sanskrit Count
This is a traditional led primary class, the focus is on the series as a whole with emphasis given to the vinyasa, the fluidity of movement and the connection of breath within the various postures. It is a class that is challenging, as the students are asked to respect the flow of the class, to know how to take care of their own bodies within the poses and very little detailed instruction is given. It is not a class for beginners although, if the student is familiar with part of the primary series they are welcome to join. The yoga student will stop at the pose they normally stop at and wait in child’s pose or sitting meditation then resume the class from back bending.
The teacher reserves the right to ask a practitioner to stop and wait if they feel the practitioner is not practicing in a controlled and harmless manner.
Great for those students who have experience of Ashtanga yoga and know the postures. It is also a good class to refine and help memorize the vinyasa between positions and the techniques for getting in and out of the positions. Lastly it is recommended for those who practice Mysore style – as the students are asked to respect the flow of the class, we can practice to control our ego.
