In ashtanga yoga, the student flows vigorously from one pose to anotherthe sequence of poses are the same each time. Upon mastering the primary sequence or series, the student is permitted to go to another series, with six series in all. The women will practice under the two masters in India -- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, 93, and his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamg -- at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute. The two men are among the few ashtanga practitioners alive to have reached the sixth series.
