Sun Salutations

All these Sun Salutations were filmed in the west side of Maui. The original clips were shot with 2 cameras and used for the second series sequence of Sun Salutations but I wanted to bring you the sun shot.

Most of these clips are shot into the sun making it hard to see what is going on.

The narration is also left out so that you can appreciate the artistic scenery and calmness these yoga videos bring. It is a wonderful gift to be able to freely sequence in the sun and it is my pleasure to share this gift with you..

Yoga is an art and these videos bring you a grain of sand in the art of sequencing…
