Ashtanga Yoga is a style of yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois in the 20th century and is considered a modern-day variation of a classical Indian yoga, widely accepted in the West. The name Ashtanga denotes eight limbs or branches, which were mentioned in Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
The Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series Workbook comes as a follow up to Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series Workbook for those who wish to pursue higher Ashtanga knowledge and are interested in advancing onto the next level. Equally suitable whether you are a teacher or a student, working in a group or alone, using it during teacher trainings, workshops or self-study, it acts as a tool to allow you to fully understand the anatomy, alignment and the technical details of the more complex Ashtanga asanas without interfering with the suggestions and guidance from your teacher or study source. It is not a textbook, but more of a progress and study log you create yourself.
