‘Climbing the Cliffs’ ~ Asana # 25

‘Climbing the Cliffs’ is the recognition that even when back on the shore, the surf adventure still requires more. In surfing you must manage your fatigue, leaving enough in reserve for your well considered return. Just like in life, we don’t always exit the same way as we entered, and navigating this safely is part of a Zurf-Yoga™ practice.

Overview: Exit the Rocks, Find the Trail, Check the Scene.

Technical: This asana is three discrete easy movements. The first involves rotations with the arms extended above the head. The second transfers weight alternatively to each leg. The third involves a bilateral standing turn. This enables a combination of stretches and twists as a warm-down.

Specific Hints: The single leg postures involve different hand movements, so remembering these avoids confusion.

Secret Yogi: The thought held on ending in complete satisfaction, is how awesome the waves still look, while extending your best intentions to those newly paddling out.
