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.
