SUNDAY YOGA BLOG TIMES: KRISHNAMACHARYA'S YOGASANAGALU!

This has been the Yogasanagalu week.  Satya and Grimmly have been translating and publishing portions of it, and G has done a photographing effort in Facebook (so far) to show all the series as designed by Krishanamcharya in the 1930's-1940's AND pretty much as we practice them today in the Ashtanga Yoga system. See the latest here.
Yeah, he is the man
What we are learning is that the series existed even then, and were designed by Krishnamacharya.  As per the way of teaching it, we know from Singleton that there was a fast count in the tours and demonstrations, or at least that is his speculation, but there was also modifications and slower counts at the palace for students that could not keep up.  It is quite an exciting time to be reading and learning straight from Krishnamacharya.

In case you missed it, here is that article from 2000 that has been all over Facebook about Pattabhi Jois and the shala in those days.

My post on the Castor Oil Bath has been receiving some comments.  Seems like the Ashtanga Yoga Saturday is going through a revival of sorts.

Also from G, 10 techniques for practicing Pratyahara. Great post.
