Beginner Yoga, Sun Salutation A with Kino on Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Beginner Yoga, Sun Salutation A with Kino on Waiheke Island, New Zealand This is the most basic yoga movement in Ashtanga Yoga. This clip breaks the movement down for beginners and builds up to a full Sun Salutation A. Shot on amazing Waiheke Island in New Zealand.

The Sun Salutation is the foundational movement of the Ashtnaga Yoga method. Performed at the beginning of each practice this flowing series is meant to awaken the inner fire, agni, of purification and is also a salutation to the solar fire.

At first the fire of purification burns through impurities and then after years of practice it transforms into the fire of awakening itself.

  1. YES! for Edinburgh! So excited!

  2. I’ll be at Triyoga in London and Union Yoga in Edinburgh this summer :-)

  3. Hi there. I find your videos truly inspiring. Have you ever thought of travelling to the UK to teach a seminar…im pretty sure i could fill the room for you.

    im just going to answer you what i think cause no one else has, correct me if im wrong, but you will generate enough heat and become warm enough to where you dont need to do an actual "warm up". i never warm up and im always fine, and i am not flexible at all, if anyone will hurt themselves it would be me, lol.

  5. Do I need to warm up before doing this? : ) I’m thinking about the hamstrings, they get a pretty good stretch during this routine, and I don’t want to get injured.

  6. very inspiring video as always , thanks for sharing this

  7. I really appreciate ur work, its awesome, how much time do i have to hold a position?

  8. Thanks for watching!

  9. Thanks for watching!

  10. Wow, that looks extremely intense. Definitely something to aspire to. You never fail to inspire, thanks :)

  11. You go REALLY fast lol!

  12. thank you for the beginner teachings.  i love to watch the advanced moves but sometimes they seem very out of reach for me as a beginner. thanks again you are so inspiring.

  13. Congrats on getting back into the practice!

  14. This video is meant for beginners, and I usually recommend beginners to step forward and back in the sun salutations until they have th strength and coordination to hold the alignment. In my personal practice I usually step forward and back for thirst one or two. You can see my oth video on sun salutation b in a studio for my personal practice.

  15. You don’t need to do the whole primary series, you can just start off with sun salutations and standing postures.

  16. Thanks for checking out my Intro to Ashtanga Course on Udemy

  17. @KinoYoga i’ve been interested in yoga, but never understood how to approach or start practicing it. any recommendations?

  18. I just bought your course on Udemy! I’m sooo excited!

  19. Question! I know the full primary series is best done in the morning and that it can take more than 60 minutes to complete. Is there a shorter practice or a combination of posts/positions that we can do for those who don’t normally wake up at 4 or 5am to do the full practice?

  20. I love you Kino, & you’re the best yogini that i’d admired. I wish i’m married to someone like you so my life will be more fit than ever. Namaste.

  21. i want to make love to you

  22. Question, I noticed that you always step back into plank and step out of downward dog instead of jumping back or jumping forward. Do you just do it for beginners, or do you just prefer to do it that way??

  23. Just finished my five sets of Surya Namaskara A and B.. Lol i haven’t done any ashtanga for a month (horrible I know), had to stop and take a breath before I went on to Padangusthasana. So in the meantime, I’ll watch this lol. Thanks for the constant flow of videos.
