Kino MacGregor presents the Intermediate of Ashtanga yoga. Called Nadi Shodhana in Sanskrit, this group of postures also called the Second Series cleanses the nervous system through a rigorous combination of backbending, twisting, hip opening and strength postures or asanas.

Ashtanga yoga is a magical, dynamic system of yoga taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy in Mysore, India that is comprised of six series of postures. This DVD begins with Kino’s insights on the benefits and philosophy of this powerful practice and then moves directly into the first segment that demonstrates the Intermediate Series as Kino learned it from her teachers in India. While the Second Series is best learned under the guidance of a qualified teacher, you can use this documentation to inspire, deepen and develop your practice.

The second segment, called “How to Work”, gives you more explanation, pointers and tips on how best to safely approach some of the most challenging asanas in the series. Taken together this DVD serves as a comprehensive guide to Ashtanga yoga’s Intermediate Series.
