Primary Series | Ashtanga Yoga with Laruga
For the first time on a video or dvd you have the opportunity of practicing a full Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series with world renowned Ashtanga Yoga practitioner and KPJAYI level II authorized teacher Laruga Glaser. About the Primary Series. The Primary Series or First Series is also known as Yoga Chikitsa, that in Sanskrit means yoga therapy. It consists of a series of postures that, if practiced on a regular basis, can purifies the physical body to make you ready for deeper yogic practice -- both physical and meditative. Despite its name it's not a sequence for complete beginners and it's recommended that you have already a yoga practice before attempting to perform its postures. If you have a Ashtanga Yoga teacher near you, it's always better to visit his/her shala to learn the method step by step in the traditional way. About Laruga: Since a young age, Laruga has been fascinated with mind/body connections and spiritual philosophy which later attracted her to the practice of yoga in early 1996 after a sincere connection and study of yoga philosophy. It wasnʼt until she stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga when she fully immersed herself into a devoted practice a few years later in 1998. Since then, she has continued to draw inspiration from her daily visit to the mat, along with long term studies with her teachers, the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and now his grandson R. Sharath Jois, of Mysore India. An advanced level practitioner and student of yoga, as well as, a Level 2 Authorized Teacher from KPJAYI of Mysore, India, Laruga entered into teaching after many years of sustained practice and brings with her over 20 years total experience instructing body movement. In turn, she is dedicated to teaching the method of Ashtanga yoga to its fullest capacity, cultivating transparency to the tradition, and the deeply rich lineage the practice originates, otherwise known as parampara. Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual; facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to step into the center of their own being, and experience their inherent potential. Currently Laruga heads the Mysore program at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden and teaches workshops and retreats internationally.
