Here you have the unique opportunity to watch and practice Intermediate Series with world renowned Ashtanga Yoga practitioner and KPJAYI level II authorized teacher Laruga Glaser.
Intermediate Series is also called Second Series and known in sanscrit as Nadi Shodhana. It refers to the results of the practice, that purifies the subtle energy channels or nadis, allowing the prana to flow freely throughout the body.
Second series is an invigorating practice with lots of challenges, like leg behind the head poses and deep backbends.
If you have a Ashtanga Yoga teacher near you, it's always better to visit his/her shala to learn the method step by step in the traditional way.
Since a young age, Laruga has been fascinated with mind/body connections and spiritual philosophy which later attracted her to the practice of yoga in early 1996 after a sincere connection and study of yoga philosophy. It wasnʼt until she stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga when she fully immersed herself into a devoted practice a few years later in 1998.
Since then, she has continued to draw inspiration from her daily visit to the mat, along with long term studies with her teachers, the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and now his grandson R. Sharath Jois, of Mysore India. An advanced level practitioner and student of yoga, as well as, a Level 2 Authorized Teacher from KPJAYI of Mysore, India, Laruga entered into teaching after many years of sustained practice and brings with her over 20 years total experience instructing body movement. In turn, she is dedicated to teaching the method of Ashtanga yoga to its fullest capacity, cultivating transparency to the tradition, and the deeply rich lineage the practice originates, otherwise known as parampara.
Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual; facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to step into the center of their own being, and experience their inherent potential.
Currently Laruga heads the Mysore program at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden and teaches workshops and retreats internationally.
