Here's a video of what a Krishnamacharya Ashtanga practice might look like with Kumbhaka in it's rightful place. This is just a short section of the two and a half hour practice that pretty much followed the current Ashtanga series but with the instructions for the asana found in Krishnamacharya's Yoga Makaranda.
It's slow it doesn't necessarily have to be THIS slow and I imagine very few find it watchable to the end let alone wish to practice like this, but perhaps I'm wrong Slow might be the new black, remember that 'slow cooking' movement a while back.

Practice Sheets primary- 2nd series. Breath in the arms come up,. It's actually quite intuitive, how about the breath. Why do we need an 'experienced guru well versed in the shastras' to teach us something that appears so intuitive? I have theory what, another one This year I've been exploring, through practice, Krishnamacharya's approach to asana, in particular, his employment of kumbhaka.
I've slightly reordered the Primary Group asana from the table found in Krishnamacharya's Yogasanagalu to bring it more in line with the current Ashtanga primary series sequence. The plan is to explore this approach to 2nd series in my practice this coming year.
Krishnamacharya doesn't seem to have followed a fixed series although clearly there are sequences and subroutines that closely follow sections within the current practice of Ashtanga, that's to be expected of course much of it is intuitive, one asana often logically follows another. Krishnamacharya is said to have given his approval. Looking at this section of the 2nd series table that I'm currently working on, with it's employment of different kumbhaka depending on the asana, we can probably agree that this is significantly more complex.
Actually it's even more complicated than the table suggests. In Yoga Makaranda Krishnamacharya gives instructions for different kumbhaka at different stages of the vinyasa of a single asana. We can see perhaps why the assistance of a guru well versed in the shastras here I read those related to pranayama practice is advised particularly as there is an intimate relationship between kumbhakam and the employment of the different bandhas.
Manju Jois went so far as to tell me recently that Krishnamacharya was mistaken in his use of kumbhaka in asana, perhaps he is right. However we are not talking about one reference in passing to kumbhaka. Yoga Makaranda is all about the breath, each individual element of the breath, we find kumbhaka's described in almost every asana. Perhaps the employment of kumbhaka is something that Krishnamacharya didn't teach to his student Pattabhi Jois, and yet we find it detailed in Yoga Makaranda written while Patabhi Jois was Krishnamacharya's student and even in some cases teaching assistant It is thought Pattabhi Jois, being a senior student, would have led the Mysore boys in their classes while Krishnamacharya would, on occasion, teach a more Vinyasa krama approach on a one-to-one basis in another room.
Perhaps kumbhaka was not intended for the young boys of the palace or beginners. These were texts Krishnamacharya was instructed to write as pedagogic manuals for schools and elsewhere. Krishnamacharya wanted to share this approach to asana, he wanted us to practice asana this way. Section of the 2nd series table I'm presently working on.
