  1. “Think about this motion as a combination of strong shoulders and strong core…” …and great flexibility in hamstrings, gluts and lover back 🙂
    I can do kinda opposite motion – a hanstand press, but never was able to do this float. Too afraid to jump forward too strongly and fall, any advice?

    • +TheZarbis If you’re afraid to fall the best thing to do is fall…. then you’ll see it’s not so bad and you’ll get the confidence to try again 🙂

    Thank you, Kino! I’m following your beginner yoga and practice kit. I realized how important the core muscles works with other muscles as you mentioned in this video. You’re my inspiration!

  9. Catch your float into shoulders, pull belly in and your feet land further up than farther back….some day I will get this…thank you for sharing – Nemaste. I have been doing Hot Vinyasa and your movement is the benchmark that I strive for, so thank you for sharing. Its more of a spiritual practice, but it would be nice to improve physical practice too. Thank you for your dedication into your Art and Practice. Your float forward into Uttanasana is nothing less than extraordinary and inspiring.

    Last thing, how do you avoid tendenitis with your elbows? I don’t believe, but correct me if I am wrong, you don’t lock your elbow joint or have arm straight? I try a very slight bend…we are all built different.

  10. I am going to watch from :45-:50 a lot before my morning practice and journalize any improvements…

    hey Kino, love your videos. I have a question, How do you pass from downward facing dog to janusirsasana, or marychasana and all the sitting postures? I always jump and get to sit down, but not directly in the posture. I dont know if I made my self clear.. 🙂 Thanks!!

  12. what girl you made that look way too easy. i can jump forward, jump through, and jump back but floating forward still scares me!
