Distinct from Mysore, where students move at their own pace & rhythm, in Led Primary Series classes students take the Ashtanga Primary Series of postures in unison. The teacher holds the count, calling the breath count in Sanskrit.
The teacher will move through the studio, making adjustments and assisting students in their expression of the series. This may also include stopping students from taking postures beyond their ability. Students may then sit to watch fellow students complete the series.
These classes maintain respect for each individual's practice, yet provide an opportunity to experience (or at least witness) the full expression of the Primary Series. Led Primary Series classes are a perfect compliment to Mysore classes, each building upon the other.
