Ashtanga Yoga Book (Primary Series Workbook)

This ashtanga yoga book (primary series) is designed to be a supporting tool on your personal ashtanga vinyasa path towards Yoga. It provides a compact introduction to the key principles of Grischa’s methodological approach for a meaningful practice in the context of the bigger picture of Yoga. The names of all postures of the primary series postures have accurately been transliterated and translated from the original Sanskrit.

The book also provides you with a place for systematically taking notes about meaningful discoveries, questions or lessons learnt on your individual path. We must always keep in mind that whatever we think about Yoga is unlikely to be near it’s true meaning, especially if we believe to have a lot of knowledge about it. Allow transformation to happen, always remain unattached to your “achievements”. Continuously re-evaluate what you are doing and why you are doing it – instead of just imitating what someone told you once upon a time. Become aware of the changes that your body, your inner awareness and your attitude towards yourself go through. This is the yogic path. There is not much to be achieved apart from that.
