How to Not Suck at Second Series

FREE five day challenge begins March 1

Learning Second Series is hard. Getting the help you need doesn't have to be.

Join the How to Not Suck at Second Series 5 Day Challenge and get a daily video delivered to your inbox with valuable insight that makes Second Series more accessible and more fun.

Here's What You'll Learn

Here's a preview of the lessons included in this challenge. Each day I will teach you some of my favorite tips and tricks accumulated from 14 years practicing the Second Series of Ashtanga yoga. The keys shared in these tutorial videos will give you ideas to improve your practice and help you find more ease in some of the most challenging parts of Second Series.

I know that Second Series is freaking hard. I've been doing it for more than ten years and guess what? It's STILL freaking hard. Everyone falls in Second Series. Everyone face plants at least a few times and most people do it every day. 

But those who get back up and try it again - those are the ones that finish the series. 

Wherever you are, BEGIN. No prior experience with Second Series needed. This training is designed to make you feel empowered by how much you can do.

Asana Connections

How the Wall Can Help in Pasasana

Nothing says Hello Second Series quite like Pasasana. In today's lesson we'll make connections between standing poses, Primary Series poses and Pasasana. We'll also cover how the wall can get you closer to Pasansana.

Use Resistance

My #1 Kapotasana Tip

Time and time again I have seen students making this crucial mistake in Kapotasana. If you know the fundamentals of the pose, but can't quite get  your hands to your feet, you could be making this big mistake.

20 Minutes Until Kapo

Strategies for Foot Behind Head

Foot Behind Head is a fundamental movement in the Ashtanga sequence. In today's lesson we'll learn strategies to help you progress in this challenging asana.

Control in Pincha Mayurasana

The set up for Pincha Mayurasana is as important as the pose itself. Today we'll talk about setting up, how a block can help you, and learn how to enter with control.

Send Help! Karandavasana Tricks

Karandavasana demands strength and flexibility. In today's lesson you'll learn how to work your legs into lotus while inverted. And don't worry, if lotus isn't your jam, I'll teach you an alternative.
