VINYASA KRAMA YOGA, sequences and subroutines.

This is an ongoing project, my plan being to constantly update the videos presented here with newer, more accurate and hopefully more accomplished presentations of the Sequences and subroutines in Srivatsa Ramaswami's book, as well as adding notes to the individual postures and sequences.


This blog has only just gone LIVE and may be suffering teething problems as I attempt to upload the 120 odd videos of sequences and subroutines over the next couple of weeks. Please let me know if you notice any videos that have been attached to the wrong post or anything else that is clearly unintended.
Most of the videos posted right now are early attempts at the sequences and subroutines and wont correspond exactly to the instructions in Ramaswami's book. I'll try to point those cases out in the post and eventually get around to re-filming the clips.

Tadasana 20min version part 1

Tadasana 20min version part 1


  1. Does one use ujjayi breath during assanas or pranayama (exhale, retention, inhale, retention and stomach kriya)?

  2. Ujaii although certain postures might get the full works, Paschimottanasana for example. Also the bandhas are floating around in the background, kind of always lightly engaged but in some postures cranked up. When i recorded many of these sequences i was going through an extreme uddiyana phase, doesn't need to be as strong as I employ it here, unless you feel so inclined.
    I highly recommend the book Ramaswami wrote with his student David Hurwitz, 'Yoga beneath the surface', i think there's a preview on Amazon. it's basically a question and answer format, think you'll love it.
