transitioning Bhujapidasana

David Robson and Jelena Vesic are just the best teachers to work with when it comes to any of the dynamic movements in Ashtanga Yoga. In this workshop video David and I use Jelena’s amazing talent to demonstrate what you are aiming for as well as breaking down the movements into manageable pieces.

Themed Interview with David Robson: Floating and Jumping

Interview with David Robson

Whenever I think of spicing up the floating and jumping in my Ashtanga practice I think of David Robson. Perhaps this is because of the brilliant videos he has had out like “learn to float” with so much technical detail.
