Ashtanga 1:08 / Half First SeriesIn this DVD David offers an alternative to people that want to practice traditional Ashtanga Yoga but do not have time for a Full First Series.  In this Half-First Series program David compassionately guides the students up to a traditional stopping point midway through the seated sequence of the First Series at Marichiasana D then completes the program with the full closing sequence as well as a deep relaxation.  This makes for a total practice time of 68 minutes rather than the full 90 minutes required for the complete First Series. It is a perfect stepping stone bridging the gap between David's popular Short Forms routines of 15, 30, and 4 minutes and the Full First Series.

Both programs are filmed in a dramatic setting focusing on his body moving in space there are no external distractions, only the simple lines of energy flowing in the postures and his soothing voice offering encouragement and direct verbal instruction.
As an added bonus to the DVD he has created valuable resources within the program menu such as the Alternatives Section where he explains in clear simple terms wonderful alternatives to the more challenging asanas as well as insights into the foundations of the practice in another section called The Five Elements of Practice.
