Surf Yoga Soul
Wildly popular teacher Shiva Rea (and avid surf goddess) is back with yet another of her signature vinyasa efforts, this time designed specifically for surfers.
Surf Yoga Soul, with Shiva Rea. Acacia
Yoga for surfers? I say cowabunga, man.
The six sequences (plus a short Savasana) are designed to help develop the physical and mental skills needed to catch and ride a wave. Rea includes a tai chi-like Wave Meditation; a Sun Salutation-based Agni Namaskar; both standing and arm-balancing Balance Flow; Mandala Namaskar based on Warior and Bow; a seated Breath Wave pPranayama practice; and a Flexibility Flow.
Throughout, Rea displays her usual mastery of the dancelike "flow style," both in sequencing and modeling. You don't need to be a surfer to enjoy this workout though; anyone will benefit while dreaming of catching that big one.
