ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA THE COUNTED METHOD

SECOND SERIES With John Scott

 

In the first series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga the student is reintroduced to their body, arriving first to Structure and Foundation, the full practice is hence called “Yoga Chikitsa –Yoga Therapy”. Once established in the structure of the Body; Foundation, Bandha, Ujjayi and Mantra the student is then ready to make an internal but subtle shift of consciousness and literally begin to “Shape Shift” and flow From Human to Animal –

“Nadi Sodana – Cleansing the subtle channels and allowing flow”

 

Join John Scott and Julia Grant Scott

for this 5 Day Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Counted Method first/SECOND SERIES DEVELOPMENT Intensive.

John will begin the 5 days revisiting the Primary Series and each day will add one-by-one and pass on to each student as his Guruji did ‘The Second Series Count’, as a practice mantra to the student, for the student to hear, recite and learn.

Plus a step-by-step full Vinyasa introduction to each new asana.

 

The Intensive

 

Come together as one practice group, grounded, surrounded and protected by the principles of Yoga, Share in a common intension to focus together, to grow together, blossom together and shine together.

Immerse yourself in mantra to discard all distracting thoughts, leaving the ordinary limited thinking mind behind to Flow and Shape Shift from … Grasshopper to Frog, from Frog to Arjuna’s Bow, and from Arjuna’s Bow to King Ustra the Camel …

  …Salabasana,       Bekasana,           Danurasana,           Ustrasana…

 

This intensive leads you to the door of Infinite Potential, ‘NOW’ is your opportunity to ‘Fly’, learn to count, bring your own mind into Deep Focus and Concentration.

Fly above your limited conditioned self and realise the

ExtraOrdinary You!

John Scott a dedicated student of yoga since 1987 and direct and dedicated student of Shri K Pattabhi Jois since 1989. He was certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Shri K Pattabhi Jois in 1993.

New Zealander by birth, John originally studied Industrial Design both in New Zealand and Australia to graduate with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Industrial Design.

 

John applies his design awareness and skills very uniquely in the teaching of Ashtanga Yoga.  His highly individual, analytical and sensitive approach touches deeply the students who work with him – resulting in a strong following.  During the past 27 years of his Yoga study, John has become known for his illustrations/charts (line drawings) of Ashtanga Yoga Primary, Intermediate and Advanced Series, which continue to circulate Worldwide, having been published in chart form and then later in Lino Miele’s book “Astanga Yoga.”

 

John’s experience has also amounted to writing “Ashtanga Yoga” – The essential step-by-step guide to dynamic yoga (Gaia Books) (second edition was out in Jan 2018 again also in Chinese language version translated by Fine Yoga owner Sherri Rao) and also producing a DVD of the ‘Ashtanga Yoga Primary series’.   John continues to write and is in the process of writing another book.

“Currently there are many traditions, styles, and brands of yoga all claiming to be linked back to one or other ancient text and some texts even claim, that yoga has always existed since time immemorial, for me, it is not important how ancient or from which tradition this practice comes from, what is important though, is this method works, it works for me! Does it work for you?” – John Scott
