In this workshop we will work through the full Primary Series following the traditional breath count. Modifications will be offered individually in the flow of this led class. It is not necessary to arrive already able to do these poses. This is an opportunity to start a dialogue and increase one’s understanding of the depth of this practice. However, if you would like a more deliberate step by step teaching of these poses consider taking the Developing Your Practice series class.
This class is appropriate for students with a consistent Half Primary Series practice or beyond as well as vinyasa level 2-3 students looking to experience this fabulous moving meditation.
