This is the first Vinyasa Krama sequence in Srivatsa Ramaswami's Complete book of Vinyasa Yoga. It's probably what I'll be working on, this time next week, on the first asana class of the 200hr TT course in LA.
I'm practicing all the sequences in the book this week, kind of brushing up before the course starts. I figure the more familiar I am with the overall structure of a sequence the more I'll be able to pay attention to the detail. If you've seen any of the other posts on the individual sequences you'll know that in the videos I make a lot of mistakes and wrong turns, missing bits out here, adding bits there. The video then is just a suggestion of the sequence, an attempt to lift it off the page.
I haven't spent much time on the sequence as a whole, I tend to use parts of it before I do anything else in my practice, pre Sury stretching if you will. I use the back stretching section if I'm doing 2nd series Ashtanga and the forward bending part for Primary. If your coming from Ashtanga this sequence is a bit of a culture shock, you finish it and think OK that's Standing out the way what's next. That's a shame because It's a nice sequence, I like to take it really slow and do some serious breath and bandha work.
Here's the outline of the subroutines
Chapter I. On your Feet sequence
1. Samasthitis 2. hasta vinyasas (arm movements). 3.parsva
bhangis (side poses) 4. ardha uttanasana (half forward stretch) 5. uttanasana 6.ardha
utkatasana 7. utkatasana (hip stretch/squat) 8 malasana/kanchyasana (noose postures)9 pasasana 10. tadasana.
And the video speeded up x4 to fit on Youtube with their ten minute limit. You'll notice I turn around a lot on the video, this is to show the behind the back hand variations.
It struck me this morning that the section on squatting and twisting might make excellent prep for pasasana. This section could perhaps be done before the Sury's Just as I start with the backbend section in prep for 2nd series backbends. here it is lifted from the full sequence above at normal speed.
