Think you’re ready for the Intermediate Series? Here’s the poster

Update:  Many have asked where they can find this poster for purchase.  Good question.  I believe it used to be available on, but they seem to have replaced it with a poster by Matthew Sweeney.  I’ve searched high and low for additional copies of the Axel Dinse poster to no avail.  But, if you click on the poster above, you can view an expanded version in more detail.  Click here to see tons of other great posters on YogaLifestyle’s Amazon store.

High Vibrations Yoga DVD by Jo Tastula

I’ve been practicing yoga pretty regularly lately with YogaGlo and one of my favorite yoga teachers on the site is Jo Tastula. Besides having a great Australian accent she teaches a pretty darn near perfect vinyasa flow class. I always feel inspired, focused, and in the moment afterwards. Most of her classes on YogaGlo range between 30 and 60 minutes–enough time to get good and sweaty–, but I recently discovered she also has an excellently produced DVD, High Vibrations Yoga, which consists of five short meditations and five sun salutation practices. Any combination of the practices can be completed in less than 20 minutes. Great for those moments when you don’t have a lot of time, but want to reconnect with and realign your body’s energy.

  13. “Ashtanga Vinyasa” was so named by Shri Pattabhis Jois when he found the original form of it in some old (very old) papers (not sure what they were). After revising it and adding some other postures in later years, he decided with his teacher to name it Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as the story goes loosely because he believed it to be part of a total system – the Ashtanga yoga system (8 limbs) of which hatha yoga is the third.
