    I love this video because too often I forget to move my feet up to be in good alignment for Adho-Mukha-Śvānāsana. Watching you do it again again was a great visual. Thanks for all you share Kino ❤

  7. Hi kino, awesome vid! Could you make a video on transitioning from chaturanga to downward dog? I see you shuffle your toes forward a bit as you flip them, but also what happens with your lower back as it’s quite a forward bend to come out of quickly into downward dog and sometimes I can feel the strain. Do I tense the core more? Would love a video on it if you have the time! Many thanks and thanks for all that you do xx

    Can someone please help me strat with yoga?? I dont know where or how to begging…any advice? Please!

    • If you practice anything at all you already do 100% more than about 90% of all people 🙂 As they say in Ashtanga: 99% training 1% theory.

      There are really not many ways to practice wrong. There are only different levels of skill. What that means to you is that you can simply copy what you see in some youtube videos (there are plenty beginner tutorials) and get started. You only have to make sure that you never force anything. If there is any pain or discomfort, stop immediately do some more research on that particular exercise and start the exercise from scratch.

      You only have to be careful when it comes to breathing exercises where you also use contractions with the muscles as this could potentially screw up your nervous system. The level on which that becomes a problem is however quite high and goes beyond the usual bandhas done in yoga. It’s more of a Martial Art thing, but I thought it’s worth mentioning. As long as you are able to breath relaxed and have no pain, you are good to go without worrying.

      Having said that, just get started. While you practice on your own you will have enough time to find a good place (good teacher). There you can learn the ins and outs. Make sure that you have a knowledgeable teacher if you are serious about yoga. The above is meant to get started. In the long run you want someone with enough skill to guide you properly. None of that 200 hour certificate crap. Get a teacher with at least 10 years practice. These days people do not spend enough time to practice before teaching.

      You can find good teachers everywhere. Yoga has spread in all nooks and crannies of the world. Search online what’s available in your region and check out different places before you commit to one. Usually you can pay for single classes. If you don’t have much money go to one class every month, so that the teacher can correct your asanas and train the rest of the time at home (remember, 99% training 1% theory).

      Hope it helps and good luck.

  18. Wished you were announcing the poses as you went. Found it hard to follow when I kept having to check the screen instead of simply listening to your voice!

  19. Thank you for sharing your practice.
