Short Forms - Ashtanga Vinyasa
When time is short, an abbreviated yoga routine is always better than no yoga at all. Enjoy the benefits of Ashtanga yoga with this Ashtanga Short Form created by yoga pioneer David Swenson, author of the Ashtanga Yoga Practice Manual.
David created a set of abbreviated routines which he calls ‘Short Forms’. These shorter sessions are a great way to become familiar with the essence of the practice when time is limited.
Sun Salutations prepare the body for a series of standing, seated and lying down Asanas (poses). This practice produces intense internal heat and sweat to detoxify the entire body.
This simple ‘short-form’ practice is ideal to keep the Ashtanga Yoga routine going throughout the week.
