When to start with intermediate series
My evening lecture yesterday was the book by David Swenson. He also said something important on the criterion when to start intermediate series: ".......one should have a sufficient knowledge of the flow of the primary series so that it is not necessary to refer to any external source, such as a video, book, tape or diagrom,......The depth of the asanas is not as important as the knowledge of how to approach them at a personal level." (Swenson, Ashtanga Yoga, p. 129). Hough.
My opinion: the earlier one starts with the intermediate series the better. The second series is more balanced with all the backbendings.
In about 2 hours I have a second interview in a company. I don't like to go. I want to listen to music. It is rainy outside, I want to stay at home. I will go, yes, I will go.
