Class 3: Yoga Transitions — Jumping Up & Back

Do you ever struggle with yoga transitions, like how to jump up to Forward Fold from Downdog, and back from Forward Fold to a Chaturanga Pushup? Well, in today’s class we’ll break it down and learn how to work this into our classes regularly.

A lot of the reason why we struggle is because we overlook the tiniest details, NOT because we can’t do it.

There’s a couple small tweaks you can that’ll help you nail this every time.

Enjoy!

Over to you! How’d it go? Was it easier to jump UP or BACK?

    Ciao Erin! Thanks for this video, I really enjoyed the tips. I would like to know whether you have any advice for making your jumping up less “heavy”. I sometimes feel like I’m getting way too “charged” when I’m jumping up and then landing in a squat instead of something nice and graceful. 🙂

    I really enjoyed it. For me, the jump back felt less awkward than the forward jump.

    Wow, first time ever the jump back clicked! Yay! The jump forward I’ve been doing for a while but I will say that I have overshot the goal before and as I’m traveling right now and practicing on an extremely slippery travel mat, I was cautious. Love this series and that the videos are getting at more challenging asanas 🙂

    This was great! I was pleasantly surprised on how well your tips helped me. I’m proud I ended up doing the jump back and jump forward so well! Thank you, Erin. 🙂

    I find being really mindful of what I want to happen helps it actually happen. If I put mental effort into telling myself this is how the jump forward is going to feel and this is the part of my body I have to control to do that, then it more often happens. Thanks!
