Ashtanga Yoga with Patricia Rafferty (Padma Malini dasi)

Padma1

For the next term we will examine several elements of the traditional yoga of eight limbs. We will explore in detail the dynamics of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary series, focusing on the foundational Suryanamaskar and standing postures with emphasis on bandhas, movement with breath and dristhis. There will be some inclusion of further postures according to ability when the sequence of initial posture can be practiced from memory. We will also examine in detail the Yamas and Niyamas, the first two of the eight limbs, by considering various characters from the Bhagavat Purana and Mahabharata that highlight the value of these ethical guidelines.
