Video based course with Joey Miles is intended for
- experienced Ashtanga practitioners who already know postures in Primary series and where they are in the sequence.
- those who want to explore possibilities, ways to work deeper and with more refinement, to allow really get in touch with what is going on during the practice.
- those who are opened to use props such as blocks and straps.
- those who practice in a Mysore style (not led) with a frequency expectation of four times a week or more. If you are practising less than this, you may have difficulty finding the time to carry out the homework and integrate it into your practice.
We have taken the lead from the way Ashtanga was traditionally taught, one posture at a time, and devised a course that really goes deeply into each posture and allows you the time to get to grips with it before you start refining the next one.
Every posture in the Primary Series, as well as the Finishing Sequence, has an associated lesson with videos on the vinyasa, detail and homework. There are 44 lessons in total with over 130 videos spread between them.
There are also additional lessons interspersed throughout the course on topics such as breath, bandha, opening tight areas, drishti, and the vinyasa count.
In this ‘Non-Linear’ version of the course, you will be given access to all the material straight away, which means you have to manage yourself. We would suggest that you proceed on a pose by pose basis with the idea of allowing yourself the time to try out, process, and integrate the lessons into your daily practice.
It will be better if you watch the videos before you start that week’s yoga practice. We have created a private Facebook group so that you may feel part of a collective experience and interact with Joey and myself as well as others on the course.
