Watch Kino MacGregor present the traditional Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series as she learned it in Mysore, India from her teachers Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy. Shot on location at Miami Life Center, the strength and flexibility demonstrated here are meant as an inspiration to begin, renew, continue and deepen your daily yoga practice with a qualified teacher. As you see Kino gracefully move in and out of the fluid vinyasa system called Ashtanga Yoga, you get a taste of the deep and lasting benefits that a dedicated yoga practice brings on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. This group of asanas known as Yoga Chikitsa is a cleansing and healing practice appropriate for all levels, yet some postures may seem difficult at first. The "Beginner's Options" that form the second segment of this offering break down the harder movements of the Primary Series into a step-by-step format with audio-visual guidance. For those seeking a higher level of difficulty, Advanced Option boxes lead the way to fun challenges. The voice over plug-in allows you to use this DVD as a guided home practice or to learn specific technical instructions, Sanskrit vinyasa counts, and Sanskrit posture names. Scene selection provides for easy navigation, while the Sanskrit words of the Ashtanga Yoga opening and closing mantras appear on the screen along with Kino's chanting and make it easy for you to learn these sacred invocations on your own. Immensely useful for beginners, seasoned practitioners and teachers alike.
