Ashtanga yoga

Ashtanga yoga is a method of yoga that involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, a process producing intense internal heat, and a profuse and purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. Surfing and yoga go hand in hand and there is no doubt about the many benefits yoga can have on surfing. Stretch into poses to improve your pop ups, build core, flexibility, and balance in surfing.
