Yoga 2008 Wall Calendar by Caroline Klebl
World-renowned yoga instructor Caroline Klebl presents these remarkable images of Ashtanga Yoga, a system of postures and techniques practiced in sequential steps. Each step, similar to each posture, prepares the practitioner for the subsequent step, leading to Samadhi, the state of pure consciousness and eternal connection with the sacred. Spend a year contemplating these beautiful images of a master yogi.
The Ashtanga Vinyasa System consists of six series of postures. Each series is commenced with Surya Namaskara(Sun Salutations) and continues with a set of standing postures. Then, the postures which are unique to one series are practiced. The practice is completed with back bending and the finishing sequence. The finishing sequence includes shoulderstand, headstand and lotus.
It takes several years of daily practice to integrate the postures and practice of each series. The series are practiced sequentially, starting with the Primary Series. The Primary Series is referred to as Yoga Chikitsa or Yoga Therapy and develops a radiant state of health and a calm mind. The Primary Series consists predominantly of forward bends and hip openers. The Intermediate Series is referred to as Nadi Shodhana, or the cleansing of the Nadies. Nadies are the subtle energy channels, which underlie the physical form. The postures of the Intermediate series include a series of back bends as well as arm balances and inversions. The Intermediate series is energizing and deeply purifying.
