A new book that encourages people to practice yoga on the sand or over a paddleboard seems perfectly matched for Hawaii readers, with our miles of gorgeous, sandy beaches and warm waters.
“Yoga for Surfing: Tips, Techniques, and Living the Flow State Yoga for Surfing” by Dashama Konah marries two activities that are all about going with the flow: yoga and surfing. As she sums up, the point of yoga – getting you to go with the flow of life- is literally framed by the sport of surfing.
The book guides you through over 100 yoga and meditation practices that effectively teach how to access the flow state of consciousness for greater health, happiness, creativity, success, and life fulfillment. Fully illustrated with photos and clear, concise instructions that demonstrate how to do yoga in a variety of settings—on the beach, on the board, while floating on water, with or without props—there is something here for everyone to benefit from, whether they are advanced surfers or beginners.
