Primary Series: Yoga Chikitsa or "Yoga Therapy" focuses on āsanas that purify the body and restore health. The āsanas are arranged in a sequential order, where each posture builds on the previous one, strengthening and returning the body to a state of balance. This traditional sequence flow is as taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. The class will focus on learning Primary Series, and discovering the ease of breath and movement. Also open to all levels. This class is vigorous and produces a light, cleansing sweat.
Intermediate (2nd) Series: Nāḍī Shodhana or "Nerve Cleansing" is learned only after the body has been sufficiently cleansed and strengthened with the learning, practicing and becoming efficient in Primary Series. It is important to have a strong foundation prior to focusing on the purification of the nervous system. The āsanas of the intermediate series are directed towards opening and clearing the subtle energy channels in the body.
