The focus of this course is the practice and method of teaching the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

The ability to give adjustments and to assist students in deepening their postures and practice is developed throughout the course. The Sanskrit names of the postures are introduced and how to teach an Ashtanga Yoga Led class effectively is evaluated in detail. The benefits of the specific sequencing and the principles of Vinyasa(the movements between postures), Ujjayi Pranayama(the sound induced breath), Drishti(the looking place in each posture) and Bandhas(the three locks or seals) are included as essential elements of the practice and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga.

I understand each posture and how my body is supposed to feel in them much better. I learned a lot about adjustments, which I had no idea how to do before this.
