Ashtanga Yoga: The Second Series

  • Yoga Shala Sacramento 2030 H Street Sacramento, CA, 95811 United States

with Bill Counter

Join Master Teacher Bill Counter for an exploration of Ashtanga Yoga's Second Series, also known as the Intermediate Series. Don't be fearful -- it's not necessarily harder than a First Series class, just different. Some of the vinyasas are easier, and it's a terrifically interesting set of poses -- you'll have a great time even if you decide to skip a few things. The class starts just like a First Series session with the salutations and standing pose sequence and ends with the traditional finishing poses. Just different adventures in the middle -- including lively backbend and inversion sequences.
All levels are welcome. Some previous Vinyasa style practice is helpful but nor a prerequisite. If you've done a bit of Ashtanga but only Primary Series, it's time to take your practice to the next level. It's a friendly class and a practice that is accessible to newcomers who can approach it gently by working with modifications and preparatory versions of the more challenging poses. Come along for the exploration.
