In this class we introduce students familiar with the Ashtanga Basic Foundations or Half/Full Primary series format to what is commonly referred to as the "2nd" series in the Ashtanga Vinyasa System. Students are guided through a series of sun salutations, and a mix of the standing postures practiced in the Ashtanga Basic, Half, and Full Primary. The teacher then guides in a workshop fashion an introduction of various 2nd series postures targeted at improving the central nervous system through spinal twists and providing opportunity to develop upper body strength and flexibility not provided for in the 1st series. The teacher teaches each student variations based on their abilities and desire for challenge. The 2nd series provides total balance in the the health of the body and mind! Best suited for those who have familiarized themselves with the Half or Full Primary series.
