The Primary Series (UK)

(John Scott Yoga Foundation Course)

Come and deepen your understanding of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary Series. This can be taken as a stand alone course for personal understanding and for those thinking about sharing the practise or taking the John Scott Yoga Ashtanga Vinyasa 200 hour Teacher Training with Sandra Howling.

This is a 36 hour course comprising of:

  • Time for you personal practise of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
  • How to understand / learn the Ashtanga Vinyasa Count for the Primary Series.
  • Focused 12 Breath Ujjayyi breath Practise and Count
  • 15 Vinyasa Spinal Stretches
  • Time for exploratory/experiential anatomy, discussions on Philosophy, theory and technique and how to begin/continue sharing this practise with students.

A course manual will be provided by Sandra, from Johns original material with his blessing and permission.

This Foundation course is not a prerequisite for the 200 hour John Scott Yoga Teacher Training, but having a full Primary Series practise and knowing the count for the Primary Series will be, so if you feel you need some support in learning this, or just wish to deepen your practise and understanding of this beautiful science, then this Foundation in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is ideal for you!
