Course intention

This is the second part of the Essentials 62hr Course aimed at those who wish to deepen their Ashtanga Primary Series practice in a holistic way.
In this course you will continue your journey from part 1 deepening your relationship to the second half of the primary series practice from Bhujapidasna through to Urdvha Dhanurasana. We will work on how it all relates to your own bodies and include more chanting instruction, mindfulness meditation, pranayama and sanskrit counting. This course is for you to develop your own knowledge of the practice, it doesn’t include assisting others. There will also be instruction in the basics of historical and philosophical theory.
