Sun salutations are said to contain every vital priority that you can access in the entire Ashtanga practice. Dylan guides us thoughtfully through Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutation A), being mindful of the breath throughout.
Boom, so great to hear that the awareness can so quicly flow. There are moments when I think I'm about to lose it.. and then like stepping under a waterfall, i'm engulfed in awareness. Let's keep finding ways to access that together. D
Thank you Dylan. I have been practicing ashtanga on and off for a few years but always alone (from a book and from cd's) and I never have taken the time to really begin at the beginning and take the time with each posture. This sun salutation video was amazing. I really understood the importance of the breath in a way that I have not before. I am very excited to be a beginner again and to start my ashtanga journey from the right place- taking my time and taking pause in the postures that I really need to hone in order to make my practice richer and deeper.
Yay, Marilo ! It is wonderful to hear that you are open to becoming a beginner. It might be the most difficult state to maintain! And it's the one we all enter with. I try to keep the beginners' mind throughout practice and I think waiting for the breath is a great tool.
