Nadi Shodhana is the traditional name for the Intermediate or Second Series of Ashtanga Yoga.  It refers to the results of the practice, the purification and strengthening of the nervous system and the energetic areas, which underlie the physical form. In this workshop the series will be introduced as well as their coordinating vinyasas, in a workshop style. This will give practitioners and teachers an opportunity to ask questions and look at key actions that develop the strength and alignment for postures, gaining a deeper awareness and understanding to the vinyasa system, and how it relates to posture within the series and other postures from other Yoga traditions.

This will be an continuation of Saturdays workshop continuing where we left off with a focus on the energetic aspects and dynamic arm balances of the Intermediate Series. Arm balances strengthen the arms, shoulders, and core as well improve your sense of balance, self-confidence, and concentration.  When we learn to balance on our hands, our arms we begin to soar no only on our mats but also in our minds. In this workshop, we will look at the arm balances of the Intermediate series and the key actions that makes the mastery of strength, stability and alignment accessible to everyone to discover the secret to balancing on their arms.
