Beginning July 6th our Monday 8:00 p.m. class will shift gears slightly. The class will be open to all practitioners at Atlanta Yoga (if you are new to Atlanta Yoga please begin in the Ashtanga Foundations classes). We will begin a detailed exploration of select asanas of the Ashtanga Primary and Second series. Primary series is known as Yoga Chikitsa and is designed to remove obstructions from the body and mind. Second series is know as Nadi Shodhana and is more concerned with the alignment of the nervous system and subtle energy flows of the body. Once a practitioner has settled into a disciplined practice it can be very helpful to begin to integrate the asanas of these two sequences. It is often the case that the primary series alone is too focused on forward bending for some constitutions and likewise, the second series too focused on backbending for some constitutions or that a particular body/mind can benefit greatly from the combined energies of these two sequences, that is,? of restructuring and refining. In this class we will begin to explore the integration of these two series of asanas in several alternative sequences.
