It is advisable not to teach the theory overly and to focus on the examples.

I do understand what the sentence means through contextual clue like the following.

1 It is advisable not to teach the theory overly and  It is advisable to focus on the examples.

But, might this sentence be like this?

2  It is advisable not to teach the theory overly and  It is advisable not to focus on the examples.

Can you help me in how I can figure it out?

Many thanks, in advance.

Yes, your interpretation is correct.

No. To express that meaning without repeating "it is advisable," you should say:

- It is advisable not to teach the theory overly and not to focus on the examples.
