Roga Chikitsa (Disease Treatment)
Ashtanga Yoga is divided into different series of asanas (yoga postures):
The Primary Series in Ashtanga Yoga is roga chikitsa, that is "Disease Treatment" (this name seems to have evolved later into "yoga chikitsa", that is "Yoga Treatment"). The name "Primary Series" is ambiguous: “Primary" means "first" as well as "main". This means: The First Series is the most important series, too, followed by the Second (Intermediate) Series, and the Advanced Series do not play much of a role any more. It is perfectly alright to practise the Primary Series for your entire life but to do it with determination.
