Sun Salutation A + B

18 MAY 2018

The Sun Salutation is the first vinyasa I learned in the Jivamukti yoga centre in New York. It showed me that the practice of ashtanga vinyasa involves great physical effort since it is a dynamic and repetitive sequence that synchronises movement with the breath.

My anti-stress yoga practice

18 JANUARY 2018

Good intentions abound, and more than ever in the first few days of the new year. But there is a big gap between theory and practice, and I can see that there is no way of channelling these intentions to establish habits that reduce my stress, which we all know is one of the main […]

Yoga for beginners. Sun Salutation A

19 MARCH 2015

I’d like to share with you a vinyasa that I easily got attached to. ‘Surya Namaskara’ A, or Sun Salutation A, is a common sequence of poses or asanas that form part of the beginning of my yoga practice. The level of effort of this practice will depend on your awareness and the elements you […]
