Traditionally in Ashtanga, there are three main sequences of postures: Primary (Yoga Chikitsa), Intermediate (Nadi Sodhana), and Advanced Series (Sthira Bhaga). The traditional system of Ashtanga is based on Patanjali’s philosophy of “eight limbs” of yoga. The authors have teamed up to demystify the practice and teachings of Ashtanga yoga, bringing to light the role of yoga in long-term health. They highlight the benefits of each pose along with illustrating safe adjustments for poses in each series.
