Clearing the energetic channels – Intermediate Series
Familiar with the primary series? An Intermediate Series, also Shodhana Nadi (Nadi Sodhana), opens with 40 yoga asanas, an energetic dimension of Ashtanga Yoga. This series is an ideal complement to a first series practice. The Ashtanga Yoga system consists of three sequences or series. The “Primary Series” (Yoga Chikitsa) detoxifies and aligns the body. The “Intermediate Series”(Nadi Shodana) purifies the nervous system by means of opening and releasing the energy channels.
The advanced series A, B, C, and D (Shtira Baga) integrate the strength and grace of the practice, requiring higher physical levels of flexibility and strength. The breath is continuously and deep during the whole practice. Even breathing cannot be overemphasized in the Ashtanga Yoga system. When breath feeds into action, and action improves posture, each movement becomes gentle, precise, and perfectly steady.
TEACHERS TRAINING Intermediate Series, October 17th – 21st, 2016
Manju will introduce the components of the Ashtanga Secondary Series (Nadi Shodhana (nerve cleansing),) as developed by his father, including the asanas (postures), the Nadi Shodhana Pranayamas (breathing) and the Shanti Mantras (Vedic peace chants).
