Sri K Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) counting through the Ashtanga Vinyasa Intermediate (Second) Series with the traditional Sanskrit counted method. Pattahbi Jois was an indian yoga teacher who developed the popular vinyasa style of yoga, know as Ashtanga Yoga. In 1948 he set up the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India which to this day continues to attract thousands of keen Ashtanga students a year from all over the world. 

I edited the audio from a 1992 YouTube video of Pattabhi Jois directing 6 students through the second series- to bring it up-to-date with how an intermediate series would currently be counted through in Mysore, India today. I included 3 drop backs after the 3 backbends.

If you would like the MP3 of the second series please let me know – just send me a message using the contact page.
