Ashtanga for Dummies- did I just insult your intelligence? No, silly!  I just want to level with you. What is Ashtanga yoga? Have you even heard of it? Do you know how to say it? Do you know what it means? Does the word sound a little mystic and maybe a bit scary?

This is my comprehensive guide to the Ashtanga Yoga Short Primary Series where I take all the mystery out of this beautiful sequence.

Ashtanga for Dummies- Just Ashtanga!

What is Ashtanga Yoga?  It’s a powerful yoga practice which relies heavily on breath work and vinyasa (flow.) It was designed in India for people who may be more flexible than you, but I believe that even “dummies” can benefit from the sequence.  My belief is that we can modify any pose to make it accessible to each yogi.

What Others Are Saying About Yoga Traveler

“I enjoyed the program and I think Abby is a great and accessible teacher.  I learned the whole series and learned how to modify certain poses.  The weekly modification videos were the best part.  I knew many of the poses but I enjoyed Abby’s offerings of modifications and the clear instructions.” Kerry Walker

“This yoga class seemed the perfect first step to building back a more healthy daily routine. This beginning program is the perfect starting point for anyone wanting to try out yoga for the first time or for someone that has taken a long break from yoga.  The class is very good at explaining poses and giving modifications but also adds challenging poses for those who are ready to try a little more.  I loved the variety of each of the 6 sessions. Abby is a fantastic teacher and has left me wanting more.” Jill Bodily

 “I love Abby’s classes because I feel like I have a permission to be okay with being far from perfect. Yes, I want to be able to do poses like her someday and I know it’s going to take very long time but I’m still feeling inner peace.” Masako Roberts

Yoga is my passion, teaching is my life. I started teaching yoga when my husband entered the US Air Force and now my career travels with me. Every time I move, I look for places to teach and a community of caring yogis who I grow to love and then one day, leave behind. This is a place where we can reconnect and create our yoga together. This site can travel with you. Welcome!
