The Ashtanga Yoga system is broken down into six different sequences: Primary Series, Intermediate Series and Advanced A , B , C & D Series. The Primary Series referred to as ‘Yoga Chikitsa’ helps to re-align the skeleton and acts as a therapeutic practice. The Intermediate Series ‘Nadi Shodana’ helps to purify the body’s energy channels –the ‘nadis’ . Finally the Advanced sequences – ‘Sthira Bhaga’ – steady strength, helps to build higher levels of strength and flexibility. Guruji Pattabhis Jois would say that the advanced series should be used for demonstration purposes only.

The Great 108 charity event took place earlier in the year hosted by Yoga Manchester at the Ghita Bhavan Hindu Temple in Whalley Range.
The event brought together 108 yogis to salute the sun 108 times to raise money for the Children in Need charity. 108 represent’s the ultimate reality of the universe as being simultaneously one (1) emptiness (0) and infinite (8).
The salutations were followed by 10 minutes of om chanting (which took the energy through the roof!), Indian music, food and drink.
All profits went to Children In Need.
The February Mysore Intensive will be March 18 – 22 at St Clements Chorlton – for full details please see the workshops area.
