Why Seventh Series?
Pattabhi Jois encouraged us, in addition to practicing the daily Ashtanga sahana, to become a family man. No matter how challenging it may be to master and practice a series of Ashtanga Yoga on a regular basis, the real practice begins here. He also emphasized many times that everyone should practice as much and what they need. I myself became a mother after ten years of daily practice. Currently* (*in 2019) as the mother of a 16-month-old wonderful little girl, I am applauding the challenges of the seventh series. Like all Ashtangas, I was caught at one time by the passion to progress in mastering each series. For a long time, I thought of motherhood as a set back that would stall me in my daily practice.
