home yoga: Madonna

“Yoga is a metaphor for life. You have to take it really slowly. You can’t rush. You can’t skip to the next position. You find yourself in very humiliating situations, but you can’t judge yourself. You just have to breathe, and let go.”                                                     Madonna

Madonna’s practice was 20 min to 2 hours of Ashtanga Yoga,
depending on how much time she had. You too can let this fluctuate.

Options for you Madonna practice are:

1) short routine (+/- 20 minutes + relaxation)
learn the Sun Salutations A and B. Which are traditionally practiced 5x each at the beginning of a routine.
You can check my schedule of this here and/or a video below for explanation (Dutch video too!)

2) 45 minute routine
Do the 45 minute series from David Swenson. Download my copy of that here.
Includes 3x sun salutations A and B.

3) 1 hour or 90 minute ashtanga routine
Check the first two videos below.

Soundtrack for this practice:
Ray of Light (1998) by Madonna
play all songs in regular order but skip 3 (Ray of Light)
