How To Do “Ninjasana” (Not Its Real Name)


Here is a short instructional HD video on how to do “Ninjasana” yoga move that I sometimes throw into my flow sequences when I teach.

Of course I made up the name “Ninjasana” so you will not find that name in “Light on Yoga” or any other Yoga Book.

However, I do think this pose comes from the Anusara tradition so it is not entirely made up. I like to follow it with coming into Gomukashana (Cow Face Yoga Pose) and then Ardha Matseyendrasana (Half Lord of the Fishes Yoga Twist) and then pick it up to an arm balance Eka Pada Koundinyasana (One Foot  Pose to honor the sage Koundin yoga arm balance) but it is also just a fantastic IT band and hamstring stretch all by itself!

Enjoy, and let me know if there are any other request you may have for poses or perhaps flow sequences! (This one is by request of the lovely April!)
