ASHTNAGA: Jump Through to Sit
Start in downward facing dog position and practice this movement by coming way up on your tip toes. Keep your hands completely flat on the mat and move your chest as far over your hands as you can.
JUMP THROUGH TIPS
1. Keep your hips high
2. Don’t worry about jumping so much as keeping your hips up
3. Arms completely straight
WHY DO JUMP THROUGHS?
Ashtanga Yoga jump throughs are not so much a yoga pose as a transition pose that helps you move from vinyasa postures into a seated pose without stopping. Efficiency and conservation of energy is helpful when you’re doing lots of postures, and although this transition CAN be very tiring at first, it later becomes easier and simpler.
