Walking into Half Primary

Walking into Half Primary

August 5th, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m at Casco Yoga Panama.

The Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga or Yoga Chikitsa is the ideal place to start the Ashtanga Yoga practice. It’s a vigorous yoga style which promotes health and overall wellbeing using breathing, postures and focus points to create and overall sensation of being in the here and now. This method has been used for centuries to cure illnesses in India, and has guided men and sages on their path to enlightenment.

As a modular and progressive yoga style, it is a system that is built upon itself and is completely customizable to the level of each practitioner. After learning the Sun Salutations and the fundamental postures with their correct method and vinyasa counts, the next step is to start learning the Primary Series postures one by one.

We will go deep into how to enter and exit each of these postures of the Primary Series, as well as their correct method of execution, modifications and vinyasa counts.
