John Scott Yoga - Primary Series

John’s Primary Series App is for Practitioners beginning their Journey or requiring a refresh of the Asanas in the first sequence of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.  Filled with tools, quizzes and material to help you memorise the sequence of Asanas in Primary Series this App is an invaluable addition to your Asana tool chest.

John Scott Yoga - Second Series

John’s Second Series App for Practitioners further on in the Ashtanga Sequence of Asanas.  This version is more focussed on providing you John’s unique instructional material for Second Series than providing tools for learning and memorising the sequence of Asanas.  We’re assuming here that you’re working through the practice under the guidance of your teacher Asana by Asana so this App is stripped back to the pair essentials for helping you progress through the Sequence

John Scott Yoga - Practice Builder

John’s Practice Builder App allows you to customise the Primary Series so you can spend longer in the Asanas you need to (and skip the ones you don’t!).  The Builder is useful when you really want to focus on specific aspects of your practice but are quite happy in others.  Add extra breaths, extra time, even repeat a posture multiple times.  Note that to keep in the essence of Primary Series the order of the Asanas is maintained!

“The Vinyasa Count, how did the Vinyasa Count come to mainstream Ashtanga?”

“So what happened…  In the early days of practice at the Lakshmipuram Shala (the original Mysore Self-Practice), we didn’t know what Guruji was saying or meaning when he directed to us “Catvari!“. We thought “Catvari” meant ‘jump back’, because Guruji would say “catvari – jump back”. So we took that translation as ‘jump back’. We took ‘Panca’ as upward facing dog. We took ‘Sat’ as downward facing dog, ‘sapta’ as jump through – We thought ‘Sapta’ meant jump through!
It took us to Wake UP! To begin listening! To realise Guruji was actually counting in Sanskrit -4,5,6,7.
So it took a little student research to start the enquiry into Vinyasa. What did vinyasa actually mean.
Guruji called vinyasa “Counted Method” .
When my good friend Lino Miele was in France and witnessed Guruji counting the whole class through as One, he saw it all come together, and he took this counting on as a research project to document the Vinyasa.  Lucy and I became involved with Lino’s project and became very much part of Lino’s book. From that point onwards I made it my focus to learn Guruji’s Vinyasa Count.
In Guruji’s own book ‘Yoga Mala’ referring to the practice as a mala, a garland of postures, he refers to every posture having a ‘State’ and every state or ‘Asana’ has a specific number of counted vinyasa to enter and exit all choreographed to the Breath.
“The Vinyasa are all like beads, Choreographed breath/body movements, all to be counted and meditated on and it is the students requirement to learn this Counted method as a mantra for their own personal practice
