The Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series is a traditional, lineage-based Yoga practice that builds sequentially in terms of flexibility and strength as you progress through the series. You will experience inner transformation every time you practice.

Ashtanga Yoga is one of the most powerful, popular and proven methods of Yoga. It involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures that produce intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that in turn detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

In this Ashtanga Primary Series, I will go point by point through every single posture, breaking each posture down in terms of technique, alignment and anatomy in order that you may perform these postures safely and effectively. While some poses may seem difficult at first, they are suitable for all levels. Modifications are provided for beginners. I have also included a full length 80-minute Ashtanga Primary Series Practice so that you practice the poses that you're learning in a traditional Yoga Flow.

I want to inspire people to find their yoga path, their inner devotion and their spiritual lineage. I received this method of practice like a gift, like a family heirloom that was passed onto me. Today I am passing this onto you. Making this Ashtanga Primary Series practice accessible and inspiring to you so that you can practice every day.

For it is not the lithe muscles, the thin waist nor the youthful countenance that is yoga’s real power. Instead, the intoxicating nectar of yoga is your ability to use this ancient technique to connect to the deepest and most powerful part of yourself and find lasting peace.

"Kino's Ashtanga Yoga Primary series has taught me the importance of breath with each posture, and to let go and let my body get there on its own. I'm having so much fun challenging myself, and I love what each class brings to my practice! I can't wait to see more from Kino on Cody!"

"Kino's ashtanga primary series has not only made this style of yoga accessible for me, she has taught it in a way that is enjoyable and no longer intimidating. Her cues are so easy to follow that all I have to do is listen and focus on my practice. And I love all of the preparatory videos as well, it really helps break everything down before you jump into the full series."
