In this video tutorial, I’ll be giving you a second simple tip to help you build strength for your jumpbacks and jump throughs in Ashtanga Yoga.
Now, we did Part 1 a little while ago, and I’ll just quickly recap – but if you’re interested in watching the entire tutorial, you can find that here.
In part one we focused on keeping your hands flat, and keeping the hips off the ground as you walk your feet back.
In this tutorial, we’re just going to add one simple addition to the vinyasa on either end: a little lift, like uthpluthi.
Here’s how you can start incorporating Tip #2:
Before you lift your hips to walk back, try lifting your bum AND your feet off the ground! Just a little lift is all you need! Then, keeping the hips in the air, bring the feet back down, walk them through and jump back.
It’s the same going forward. Inhale jump forward, keep the hips off the ground, walk the feet through keeping the hands flat, and once the legs are through the arms lift the feet up before you sit down. Another challenge!
Try it out, and let me know how it goes!
