Core Strength Yoga: Lift Up and Jump Back with Kino MacGregor

The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.


Yoga Class Description

Unlock the power and strength behind the magical lift ups and learn how to jump back and jump through in this technique driven online yoga session. Use this as a complete strength practice and as an addition to an already established Ashtanga Yoga practice. Jumping back from a seated position is one of the most challenging movements in the Ashtanga Yoga method. In this class you will build strength in all the necessary muscles so that you will be strong enough to jump back and through. You will also understand the movement mechanics and break down the flowing movement into small, digestible segments. This class is also great if you're working on handstands because the jump back and jump through holds the key to powerful strength. 

The journey into strength in the Ashtanga Yoga method is a journey of self-discovery. The Ashtanga Yoga method asks you to find the inner spiritual fortitude known in Sanskrit as Sthira, which means strength and steadiness of mind. Every posture that challenges your limits of what you know as possible is a key that opens the door to the discovery of the infinite potential of the human spirit. Krishnamacharya said that yoga is the process of turning the impossible into the possible and then over a lifetime of work transforming the possible into grace. By starting at a place of impossibility and walking the long, arduous path towards possibility, you build the kind of strength and steadiness of mind that knows how to work the magic of making dreams materialize with the sheer power of belief. In essence you learn to believe in yourself with the power of yoga. (30 mins.)

Thank you for the great instruction. I don't know if I will ever be able to do this but at least now I understand how to build it.

This is such an effective short practice! I have been struggling with building the core and arm strength for jump back/throughs and this was an amazing breakdown of all the elements. I will be adding this to my practice a couple times per week. Thanks, Kino!
