Ashtanga Modified Primary Series

Jack Cuneo

Ashtanga Vinyasa is one of the classic forms of asana practice that brought yoga to America. It's still thriving today, thanks to the tireless work of its students and lineage-holders. This class will move you through a modified form of Ashtanga's Primary Series (the first sequence students begin to learn), which features Sun Salutations, followed by a rigorous set of standing and balancing poses and many deep, unusual postures. Note to experienced Ashtangis: this class modifies several of the most extreme moments of Primary Series, and does not include headstand, shoulderstand, or the Kurmasana section of the series. If you have learned these poses in-person from a skilled instructor, feel free to add them into your practice!

Jack Cuneo shines a respectful, devoted light on this practice: "Ashtanga Vinyasa was my initiation into yoga. I am not exclusively devoted to the style, but I hope my love and experience with it comes through and benefits you. Because the Ashtanga Vinyasa system is deep and precise, if you enjoy my Ashtanga classes, I highly recommend that you seek out a Certified or Authorized teacher to learn this practice in a traditional way!"
