If everything seems to be happening at the same time, just breathe!
According to the ancient yogic text, the Yogasutra of Patanjali, Yoga means ʻʻThe waves of thoughts come to rest in the spirit. ʼʼ The same will happen to you while you are in the waves of the ocean.
The Red Star Yoga sessions are specifically tailored to the needs of a surfer. Therefore, the focus is on relaxing asanas (exercises), to regenerate the body after a day of surfing. A mixture of stretches and relaxing exercises help your blood circulate through the body more freely. This way you can enjoy the next day’s surf session without feeling sore or physically tired.
