The ultimate purpose of yoga is to become aware of our deepest nature by pacifying and eventually stilling the constant flow of thoughts in our mind, but without good health and a strong balanced system that’s free from disease, it is very difficult to find the necessary equanimity for this to happen. The main purpose of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, is to function as therapy for the many different conditions and ailments that can affect physical, mental, and emotional balanced states.

The success of the Primary Series as a healing practice lies in proper technique, without the right intention and right knowledge of what we practice everyday day we could miss getting the main benefits of this sequence. The Primary Series Complete Course at Ashtanga Yoga Long Island was created with this in mind.

The main intention of these 14 classes is to understand how the postures of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga affects our physical and energetic bodies in different levels. When analyzing in these terms, we can identify several different therapeutic action: the individual benefits of the postures on specific organs, organ systems, to treat specific diseases or aligned the musculoskeletal system; the benefits of the specific order and groups of āsanas, which brings about a gradual transformation of the whole system; and the benefits of the essential elements in which any asana yoga practice should be based on, the Yamas and Niyamas, and the Aṣṭāṅga method of vinyāsa and tristhāna, which is important for all series of Aṣṭāṅga yoga. It is through the curative effects of practice of yoga cikitsā that we can first experience the combination of effortlessness and stability within āsana.

At the end of these Course you will have the tools to intelligently use the postures of the Primary Series to bring health to your body and equanimity to your mind.
