What to expect in this tutorial?
Today Dr. Ronald Steiner and our Yogini Pia Prosser invite you to practice the traditional Finishing Sequence of the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition along with them. As Ronald counts and Pia demonstrates, you can see and feel the rhythm that is carried throughout this sequence. In this way, you can learn the sequence so that you can integrate it into your own personal practice. At the very end of the sequence you will deepen the breath which will promote calming the body and mind.
For whom is this video?
You can begin right away with this video. Practice the Finishing Sequence independently or at the end of your regular practice. The choice is yours! Ronald's cues and counting are perfect for immersing yourself in a breath-led moving meditation.
