Ashtanga Yoga: Yoga Chikitsa & Nadi Shodhana, Mantra & Traditional Hatha Yoga Shloka
Author: Manju Jois and Greg Tebb
Spiral-bound Paperback: 89 pages
Publisher: Self-published (Greg Tebb)
Five years ago, Manju called his longtime student Greg Tebb with the idea of putting together a book combining the Ashtanga yoga system and traditional "shlokas" (verses) from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Since that first idea, they have expanded the scope of the book (now in its 3rd edition) to also include shlokas from the Geranda Samhita and Yoga Rahasya. First introduced at Manju's teacher training workshops, this valuable resource is now available here.
- Photographs and detailed listing of the Vinyasa Krama (breathing sequence) of Primary and Intermediate Series
- Shanthi Mantras, Vedic peace chants
- Gayatri Mantra
- Mangala (auspicious) closing chants
- Hatha Yoga Shlokas (verses) relevant to the techniques and benefits of the Ashtanga asanas
- Appendix with Vedic and classical Sanskrit chants (extra chants not included on Manju's CD)

Manju Jois is the oldest son of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, recognized worldwide as the foremost authority on Ashtanga yoga. Manju started yoga at age 7 with his father and began teaching at age 15. He has taught continuously throughout the world for the last 50 years.
This workshop video presents the Ashtanga yoga Primary Series and traditions in their purest form, providing a rare and privileged opportunity for practitioners to learn from a genuine Indian master. Using the original Sanskrit so that students will benefit from the traditional system, Manju teaches the powerful healing elements and techniques that make up the Ashtanga system, including a series of asanas (postures) known as The Primary Series or Yoga Chikitsa (Yoga Healing), as well as Vedic peace chants (Shanthi Mantras).
Manju Jois's dedicated life-long mission is to provide training for students and teachers in the traditions of authentic Indian yoga. He is honored, therefore, to be able to offer guidance to all who wish to learn and benefit from Ashtanga yoga's ancient and time-honored practices.
