Moon Salutations

Beginner II

Moon salutations are a fun alternative to the popular sun salutations. They are very different - bringing in goddess, pyramid, standing side bends and no downward facing dog. Anastasia introduces the class for the first 6 minutes, so if you would prefer to go right into the flow, skip to 6:45. This is designed so that you can continue on your own once you remember the flow for yourself.

Perfect easy flow, well rounded stretch for 6 minutes. Start video at 6:40

I was recently told to avoid bending in half or downward dog. I thought it meant the end of yoga for me. However, this class did the trick. I feel stretched out while avoiding folds. I like Anastasia's calm voice and gentle pace. Thank you.

Thank you for providing guidance for the moon salutation - as we are about to enjoy a full moon (March 2018).

Thank you for this lovely relaxing sequence, Anastasia. Thought I would do it in the energy of the new moon just now. I always enjoy the audience that's in the water behind you, too. :-) What kind of critters are they??

So glad everyone is enjoying the Ninja Pose/flow. It's for sure harder than it looks, and there is something to satisfying about making it from one end of the mat to the other so down low :)

I have injured shoulders from HIIT workouts so I am slowing down but still working out with yoga and various cardio. This is a great flow that doesn't impact the shoulders but does help stretch them. Thank you! It's been difficult finding standing yoga flows and this one has a great pace and utilizes a lot of muscles.

Loved the initial walk-through, and new (to me) variation of Moon Salutations - yay, on a yummy Taurus Moon today!
Ninja dancer stretches were so welcomed - balance and hip opening. Will do more of these.
Muchas gracias, Anastasia!

Great to do at night and on full or new moons. The ninja changeover is going to take a bit more strength and practice though! Thanks.

Just what I needed, short routine I can repeat (or not) depending on the circumstances. Thank you!

It's hard for me to keep track of the breathing and i get winded fast! other than that i love the stretching. Practice makes perfect!

Love this, great to do something a bit different. And as CC noted, it's not quite as easy as it seems at first, I'll be working on my ninja!

Nice i like the moon salutation. Thanks for break down and it helped me to memorize the poses.

I love this! I work as a barista and my legs and feet always take a beating. This provided great lower back stretches, as well as a pretty deep stretch in my feet, which I didn't even know I needed!

I agree with previous comment. Really energising with enough challenge for me.

So glad to learn of an alternative to sun salutations! Thought this flow was going to be too easy until I attempted my first ninja without hand support. Can't wait until my ninjas look as effortless as Anastasia's. Please, more videos with less common poses!
