With their debut album “we are Kant Kino - you are not” released in 2010, the Norwegian duo took everyone by surprise and got elected to be the best EBM discovery of the year by many. Three years later, their “father worked in industry” CD reinforced their position with an even more matured production style brilliantly mixing stomping beats and melodic synths. Don’t we say that “all good things come in threes”? Well, KANT KINO definitely confirm this saying by offering us “Kopfkino” the 3rd installment signed by this epic EBM franchise.
The magic of the Ashtanga Yoga system comes from its perfect balance between the two opposing forces of Strength and Flexibility. In this DVD Certified Ashtanga Teacher Kino MacGregor guides you through the foundational elements of the challenging Third Series. Known in Sanskrit as Sthira Bhaga, translated as Strength and Grace, this series involves some of the hardest and most intense movements possible.
On this DVD we introduce you to the Ashtanga Yoga system, devised by our teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and traditionally taught in Mysore, India. Including four distinct segments that are meant to be played repeatedly to deepen your yoga journey, this DVD is a perfect at-home practice manual for Ashtanga Yoga.
Watch Kino MacGregor present the traditional Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series as she learned it in Mysore, India from her teachers Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy. Shot on location at Miami Life Center, the strength and flexibility demonstrated here are meant as an inspiration to begin, renew, continue and deepen your daily yoga practice with a qualified teacher. As you see Kino gracefully move in and out of the fluid vinyasa system called Ashtanga Yoga, you get a taste of the deep and lasting benefits that a dedicated yoga practice brings on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Ashtanga yoga is a magical, dynamic system of yoga originally taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy in Mysore, India. It is comprised of six series of postures. In this DVD set, Kino MacGregor presents the Intermediate or Second Series of Ashtanga yoga. Called Nadi Shodhana in Sanskrit, this group of postures cleanses the nervous system through a rigorous combination of backbending, twisting, hip-opening and strengthening postures or asanas.
The poetry is in the shuffle of materials, a poetry of revelation; literally Bitomsky sitting at a desk looking and speaking about photos of films, documentary material, with TV monitors and tapes of films being handed back and forth, popped in, “checked” – a kind of rotating poetic/pedagogy.
