Replaces Ūrdhva Dhanurāsana as practiced in 1st Series
After about two years of constant practice a new energetic dimension unfolds for you. This phase on the path of Yoga is called Nāḍi Śodhana, the cleansing of the energetic channels. Breath (Ujjāyī ex in ), energy control (Bandha) and focus (Ḍṛṣti ) become continuously more deep in experience. Sometimes at this point the physical body is so flexible and powerful that the 1st Series (see there) is no longer adequate as a field for learning. Then 2nd Series forms a new opportunity for practice. The transitions between positions follow the same logic as in the series before. The new positions of 2nd series are added (Sunday to Thursday, except on moon days) to the 1st Series just before Ūrdhva Dhanurāsana. Following the outlined steps, you can build up your practice, together with an experienced teacher. In this manner 2nd series will slowly replace 1st series on five days per week.
