podcast ep 18: refresh your sun salutations

You can listen below, and you can also listen in iTunes and Google Play and pretty much anywhere else podcasts are played, including Spotify!

Exploring Sun Salutations and their mythology, we talk about how when we know something well, it brings certain good qualities and other challenges. I offer some thoughts on evolving our approach to Sun Salutations, including different approaches to cues, sequencing, and how to approach plank, wrist stability and spinal articulation in cobra.

-      The story of Hanuman the monkey-faced god eating Surya, the sun God, and how the Sun Salutation became Hanuman’s offering
-    What grilled cheese has in common with the Sun Salutation
-    Taking something we think we know and changing it enough that we’re willing to explore it with fresh eyes
-    Why I don’t teach a breath-matched-to-movement approach to Sun Salutations
-    A bit information on how to integrate a little more stability into your hands, wrists and shoulders in plank posture
-    Our options for not doing Chaturanga and what we can do instead
-    How we approach Cobra, what we should call it, how we can cue it, and working on spinal articulation through our approach
