Forget Everything You Think You Know About Yoga – Prasara Is A Dynamic Method Of Practice That Will Help You Move Better And Feel Better While Learning Fun And Interesting Ways To Move Your Body.
OK, let’s be honest here – you’ve heard of yoga before, so it’s not as if you’re coming to this page expecting to have your mind blown. You’ve probably seen some pictures of dudes in purple leotards and noticed those $12 DVDs at Wal-Mart. You’re not reading this page without some pre-existing idea of what yoga is.
Please don’t judge this based on what you’ve seen in the past.
Prasara Is Different. Really.
It’s a well-established fact that practicing Yoga will help you increase flexibility and learn to relax, and various studies have shown it to correlate to just about any marker of good health you can think of. You know all this already, so I’m not going to go on about why you should practice yoga. However, I do want to tell you about what makes Prasara unique and what it can do for you.
The short story is that Prasara was created to develop Flow. We’ll talk more about this later, but the gist is that Flow is a quality of movement in which you can transition smoothly form one thing to another.
Flow is also a mental state sometimes referred to by athletes as “being in the zone.”
Actually, Flow is a lot of things, and that can make it difficult to describe – and even harder to learn. But it isn’t impossible, and we’ve been teaching it for years to our private clients, in live seminars and workshops, and though this course, the Prasara Primer.
The unique element of Prasara practice as opposed to most other styles of yoga is simply that traditional yoga is fixated on sitting in poses while Prasara shifts the emphasis to the transitions between poses. You’ll still use the same postures and positions, but we’ll also work on your ability to “flow” from one to the next so you can develop real agility, grace, power, and yes, Flow in everything you do.
Within your first month using the Prasara Primer, you’ll:
- Restore your self-confidence as you master increasingly challenging movements.
- Challenge your nervous system for increased movement efficiency.
- Boost power and mobility simultaneously.
- Play better at any sport with increased balance and spatial awareness.
- Neutralize pain from tight muscles and stiff joints.
- Minimize sidelining injuries and correct the imbalances that cause them.
- Develop true functional muscle without excess bulk.
- Tap into the unlimited creativity and spontaneity inside you.
- Practice anytime, anywhere – with no equipment and minimal space.
After you’ve used Prasara for two months, you’ll wonder at how much better you feel in your body and your overall physical prowess and agility. Guaranteed.
I have practiced yoga for the last 18 years and seen a variety of different teaching styles. Some styles of yoga exist in an almost mystical shroud: exclusive cliques practicing a difficult series of movements. Other styles prescribe a rigid, unchangeable series of postures. The wonderful thing about Prasara yoga is the intuitive, open manner in which it can be practiced.
The Prasara Primer is an excellent starting point. The material is phenomenally user-friendly, and the clear, open tone of the Primer will enable anybody at any fitness level to get started immediately on a lifelong Prasara practice.

Is Prasara Really The Best Style Of Yoga?
There’s no such thing as a “best” way to move your body. There are wrong ways – injurious ways, like those awful stretches your high school gym coach used to make you do – but the beauty of yoga is that most of the poses are very difficult to do in a way that could cause you to hurt yourself.
While many styles of yoga insist on following a set sequence of however many poses for however many minutes, the ultimate goal of practicing Prasara is to teach you to flow without thinking of what comes next.
Yes, in the beginning, you’ll be practicing routines (this course includes six of them – more about those later), but through practicing the routines, you’ll actually be giving your body the vocabulary of movement you need in order to improvise your own movements.
That last bit is the real magic of Prasara and what makes it such a natural fit for athletes.
Going with the Flow – On the Field and Off
If you’re an athlete in any sport, you already know what Flow is. Your focus tightens, and the outside world fades away. You breathe deeper. Time slows down. You get tunnel vision, and the path between you and your goal opens up. You don’t have to think about what to do – you just act, spontaneously, in the moment.
Even if you’re not an athlete, you’ve probably experienced flow while driving on the highway, playing a musical instrument, or doing something else that requires a relaxed concentration.
Flow feels good, and when you’re in it, you don’t want it to end.
Even if you’re not the “sporty” type, you know that one of the least useful things an athlete can do is to stand perfectly still during a match. In fact, that might just be the fastest way to lose in most sports.
No, athletes have to move. So it’s important that a yoga style designed to develop athletic movement not spend too much time sitting still.
Prasara Is Like Injury Insurance For Athletes
You’ve probably seen videos of athletes getting injured. These videos are painful to watch – not only because we can see an injury occurring, but because we can see it coming before they do.
When athletes get surprised, they get hurt.
The ball travels in an unexpected direction. Another player attacks from an unexpected angle. They step on a slippery patch. They get faked out.
Things happen that we can’t predict or control.
Prasara yoga is like injury insurance for athletes because it trains you to always be ready to adapt to changes. If you can’t move the way you had planned, you simply transition to a different position. Flow to the next movement and keep going. Sidestep the other player. Jump to make the catch. Learning to adapt can help you stay in the moment – in Flow – so you don’t get caught off-guard.
And it’s the same thing off the court too.
Be More Confident With Everyday Movements
And don’t think this just applies to athletes – we all use our bodies for a variety of tasks every day, and it’s not uncommon to hear about people twisting an ankle stepping off a curb or pulling a back muscle while bending over to tie a show or pick up a dropped wallet.
What would it be like to know that your body was prepared to adapt to anything that comes up?
Flow isn’t just for sports – it means more confidence in every step. More power and assurance when you open a door and enter a room. More agility to navigate the unexpected challenges life throws at you every single day. And all of this translates to more effective and efficient movements that leave you with less stress, more energy, and a greater feeling of mastery in your environment.
Yoga For Your Lifestyle
And that’s the most important thing, after all: applying Prasara to YOUR life.
Whether you want to improve your athletic performance or just enjoy playing with your kids (or grandkids), Prasara practice will teach you to move with more control and ease. You’ll find greater mobility and confidence in everything you do with your body. And you’ll have fun.
Of course, if you can’t make Prasara practice fit your lifestyle, it won’t help you.
You won’t have to devote a certain amount of time every day to practice. Though you’ll see faster results with more work, just a few minutes at a time is enough to get started, and you can literally do this anywhere, with no equipment or special clothing.
I am dropping you a quick line about how pleased I have been with your Prasara Primer. I have used other yoga programs in the past, but frankly I have found them to often be unworkable for me. I picked up yoga to compensate for the stress my body undergoes when practicing martial arts. The problem is that most programs become very time consuming until they actually take time away from my primary focus. The routines in the Prasara Primer are very efficient, focused and brief. The flexibility of the program has made it something I can actually use long-term.
Five Six Prasara Primer Flows For Full Body Training At Any Level
The Prasara Primer includes
six unique Prasara Yoga flows, each designed to target a specific aspect of athletic movement. By practicing them together in the sequence outlined, you’ll be building your body systematically to improve every facet of your abilities. You’ll also have a lot of fun discovering new ways to move your body – the kind of fun you haven’t had since you were a kid.
Five Prasara Yoga Flows for Specific Movement Abilities
- Cricket –The Cricket flow is ideal for developing hip mobility. In addition to greater flexibility, you’ll notice improvements in all activities that require squatting and bending at the knees – everything from surfing to picking up your kids.
- Vine – Like a vine, you’ll root deeply into the ground to increase balance and single-leg stability. Vine is perfect for kickers in martial arts or ball sports as well as runners or anyone who spends a lot of time on one leg.
- Wind – The Wind flow will improve your ability to breathe while twisting and turning your body. Useful for sports like surfing and snowboarding, but also tennis, baseball, and golf. It’s virtually impossible to perform this flow without experiencing some degree of flow in your breathing.
- Ocean – Grapplers will especially appreciate the Ocean flow’s emphasis on seamless transitions on the ground. Ocean is also a lot of fun for those of us who enjoy rolling around on the floor.
- SeeSaw – SeeSaw is all about the core – front and back and all around. This flow proves that yoga is anything but passive, as consistent practice will yield stronger arms and trunk through pressing movements and balance holds.
As of version 2.1, we’ve added a brand new flow sequence to the mix:
- Root — Created especially for beginners or people who are returning to training after an injury or time off. Root lays the foundation for productive Prasara practice with postures anyone can do, building the balance and mobility you’ll need to master the five original flows in the most direct and efficient way possible.
Each of the five original flows has three levels of difficulty and sophistication.
Begin with Root Flow to prepare your body and get used to how Prasara works (it’s a little different from other yoga styles you’ve seen), then move on when you’re ready. As you cycle through the five movement-focused flows at each level, you’ll systematically build your entire body – increasing strength, mobility, and smooth, effortless Flow.
The Prasara Primer Course Components
The original Prasara Primer was released back in 2006, and over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of teaching hundreds and hundreds of students and taking that experience back and updating the Primer. I’m now on Version 2.1, which includes some major improvements not only in terms of content, but also in the way I present the materials to make is as easy as possible to practice Prasara.
Each component of the package listed below forms an integral part of the total Prasara curriculum. By utilizing each of these resources, you’ll cut the learning curve and start experiencing better movement and greater flow even sooner.
Here’s what’s included:
The Prasara Primer has been proven time and time again to help people of all fitness levels and backgrounds feel and move better. When you order the Prasara Primer, you’ll get immediate access to the following:
This “master text” shows you how unlock your Flow and blast your old limits while providing all the necessary background on Prasara yoga’s theory along with tips for getting the most our of your practice.
Everything is explained in simple, clear language, and I’ve included loads of advice on effective training and a section on yogic breathing exercises your can perform anywhere. This is truly the most user-friendly yoga text you’ve ever seen, because I specifically designed it to be. I’ve read all the classics and filtered out all the mysticism and vague language to leave nothing but actionable advice you can make use of NOW.
Our tutorial component includes 67 Videos that leave no stone unturned in learning to perform all of the necessary movements. You’ll get:
- 19 Demonstration Videos showcasing the liquid power and artistic grace you’ll develop with Prasara practice. You’ll never be left guessing when you can simply watch and follow along with me as I perform every routine.

The best thing about these videos is that you can load them onto your smartphone or other mobile device and take them to the park or in another room and practice wherever you like. No more having to clear out a space in front of the TV or computer – it’s yoga to-go.
Most yoga programs show you a routine and then leave you to figure everything out for yourself, but the Prasara Primer doesn’t leave you hanging.
The Training Implementation Guide includes 5 complete programs for integrating Prasara into your current routine. Where those cheap DVDs give you zero guidance on how to get the results they promise, the Primer includes a detailed guide for using yoga to achieve a variety of goals (muscle building, fat loss, endurance, etc.) – on your own schedule.
This is your secret weapon for making Prasara a convenient part of your lifestyle – which is the ONLY way to ensure results.

This is an invaluable resource for interpreting the fine details that are so difficult to catch when trying to learn from watching videos, and that’s why I’ve gone to the trouble to create these guides to accelerate your progress.
You may not always have access to a video player, but what happens if you want to practice and still haven’t memorized the entire sequence?
Easy – just let me talk you through it.
Included are 15 .mp3 Follow-Along Tracks so you can listen on your iPod and take your practice on the road.

If I could kiss you I would!!!
Thank you so much…, You’ve been so helpful, and the yoga has really worked. Not just with the back pain but with my movement as a whole. If this is the result from just doing the beginner stage of Cricket, I can’t wait to see what happens when I learn the rest and do the other flows!
Thank you so much!
The Simplest Guarantee Ever
I want you to experience the joy of moving your body with effortless freedom, and I’m willing to work with you to ensure that you get there. If you ever have questions regarding the flows or trouble performing the movements, I’m just an email away.
That said, I recognize that this course might not be all things to all people. I’m totally cool with that.
Here’s the not-so-fine print:
If you aren’t happy, I don’t want your money.
Try the Prasara Primer for 60 days. Follow the included progression. And if you’re not satisfied that Prasara has made a huge difference in your movement capabilities after working on the flows, just ask within 60 days for a refund. Even better, get in touch sooner, and I’ll help you make adjustments to get more out of your practice, so there’s really no way you can not make progress.
There simply isn’t a Yoga product on the market that can match this one.
The Prasara Primer gets 10/10 from me. If it can take a terrible Yoga practitioner like me who couldn’t stand the idea of Yoga practice and turn me into a willing daily practitioner, imagine what it can do for someone else with more ability and patience.
To Ryan Hurst for restoring my faith in Yoga, and opening up endless possibilities I never thought possible as an athlete, father and human being, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Version 2.1 takes things to the next level, giving you clearer explanation, new videos, and an easy-to-follow progression you can use to tackle the flows.
You owe it to yourself to put Prasara Yoga to work in your life, whether you’re trying to improve your athletic performance, start working out again, or just bring a little bit of fun back into your routine.

P.S. — There is simply no better program for learning Prasara Yoga and putting it into practice in your life. There are tons of yoga DVDs on the market that will teach you a few poses, but they won’t give you a program with day-by-day directions for getting the most our of your practice. Most importantly, they won’t give you Flow.
If you just want another yoga program collecting dust, go to Wal-Mart. If you want clear, logical explanations and plans for reducing pain, improving mobility, and increasing performance, Prasara Primer is for you. Get it now.
P.P.S. — Don’t forget that you’ll have 60 days to try to Prasara Primer, risk free. There are no subscriptions and nothing else to buy before you can begin to experience Flow with the Prasara Primer.
Can’t sing enough praises about the Prasara Primer. It’s what I’ve been looking for in a yoga instructional. It leaves the guesswork out of the practice so the practitioner can focus every ounce of energy on getting into flow. All other concerns are left at the door.
The Primer will challenge many people’s notions of just what yoga is – there is no fluff here. There’s something for all levels of practitioner and all styles of learning. The only thing they could add to beef up the package is to have Ryan show up at your door and personally kick your butt into high gear – which might be too scary for some, so maybe it’s a wise move to hold off on that bonus.
There’s literally something for everyone – My mother’s even giving Prasara a shot (finally!). If it’s accessible to her, it’s accessible to anyone.
