Despite the fact that we’re all about 1/10 as flexible as Kino MacGregor, this “Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga” promises to be a great resource for passing on the tradition. We’ll let you know when it becomes available from Miami Life Center. Should be “soon.” [Update: Video is now available here].
On this DVD we introduce you to the Ashtanga Yoga system, devised by our teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and traditionally taught in Mysore, India. Including four distinct segments that are meant to be played repeatedly to deepen your yoga journey, this DVD is a perfect at-home practice manual for Ashtanga Yoga. You will learn the philosophical foundations of all yoga practice including a brief history of Ashtanga yoga and the genesis story of yoga itself. The third segment of the DVD details the powerful use of breathing as a connection between the body and the mind. A full one hour practice of Ashtanga Yoga complete with Sun Salutations, Standing Postures, Seated Postures, Backbends and Finishing postures completes your experience. Many modifications are offered so that all levels can enjoy trying the Ashtanga Yoga method. We humbly dedicate this DVD to our teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who passed away in 2009, at the age of 94, leaving behind a legacy that has touched countless lives around the world. We hope that our teaching carries the brilliant torch of his guiding light to many more students. We hope that you will practice often and experience the healing benefits of the Ashtanga Yoga method.
