The Primary Series within Ashtanga Yoga is about creating good health. Sometimes referred to as ‘Yoga Chikitsa”.   Caroline Klebl advises “The primary series or Yoga Chikitsa is designed to eliminate disease”.  Whilst within this course we focus on a gentle introduction to the practice, you should still find benefits both to your physical body and also supporting a relaxed mind.

Yoga offers a powerful, tried and tested method of pushing back against life stress, keeping the body healthy and protecting health into the longer term.
