"Learning the sequence was like receiving one's
first gift - a new world had opened.
Life would never be the same, beauty had entered
and would continue to blossom."

-Derek Ireland

Derek Ireland was a pioneer of Ashtanga Yoga and was responsible for bringing Ashtanga Yoga to Europe from India. Derek is revered thoughout the world for his teaching and has inspired many of this generation's great Ashtanga Yoga teachers. Before his death in 1998, Derek made this recording of a led primary series class. He did so with a desire to pass on his enthusiam and love for the Ashtanga Yoga series as taught to him by his guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This rare recording was previously shared with only a handful of friends and students. It is presented here with hopes that Derek's words might benefit all who seek to extend and deepen their practice.
