The situation couldn't be more different now it seems. How many does Sharath allow to continue through to the end of an intermediate led. Is it still the case that the majority are tapped out at some point and left to sit until finishing. Most in the video below would probably have been tapped out at the first posture, different times.
Miley Cyrus' Intermediate Ashtanga Marichiyasana D. ALSO Madonna's Eka pada Sirsasana, Sequences Vs groups and Marichiyasana G and H
We can't be even be certain that Pattabhi Jois practice Advanced asana as a series for a significant period of time, if at all.
See my earlier post.
Should it matter if and how long Pattabhi Jois may have practiced the Ashtanga 'methodology' himself
