This week on Olotita’s Youtube channel,  we begin the Ashtanga Yoga Standing Sequence!  Today we explore the first two standing posture in the Ashtanga Yoga practice, Padangusthasana & Pada Hastasana or Thumb to Big Toe Posture & Hand to Foot Posture.

This week you start to add new postures onto your foundation, the Sun Salutations and modified finishing sequence.  Each day you practice the Ashtanga sequence, you start with 3-5 Sun Salutation A, 3 Sun Salutation B and then you begin your standing and later seated sequence postures.  And you always finish each practice with finishing sequence.  So, after today you can add the first two postures in the standing sequence to your daily yoga practice.  Once we add several more integral standing postures, we will publish another practice along guided yoga class for you to enjoy!  Keep up the good work, stay consistent and enjoy your practice!

All the video tutorials and classes on youtube are 100% free.  It is a way for me to share my passion for this practice, help others learn tools for self-regulation, health and happiness, and it is a true joy for me. All of Olotita’s tutorial videos are here to help you go a little deeper in your understanding of the body mechanics of the movements, and your own body in space.

Today’s video is one of the true tutorial videos in our Yoga Asana Series, so I recommend you watch the video all the way through the first time you watch it, so you can fully absorb the lecture portion of the video. Then, you can play it again and practice along with the concepts of movement, muscle activation, breathing techniques, etc.

Time Stamps are provided in the description box of the YouTube Video for ease of reference when reviewing the material from today’s video.

I post videos each week to build upon the topics from the week before.  If you’d like to start at the beginning with video #1, scroll down to see the full list of Videos in the series, beginning with our foundations video #1.  Then work your way through each following video to begin learning the foundations of a Yoga practice you can learn and do at home, or while traveling; and all at your own pace.

If you are brand new to yoga, you are at the right place!  And if you have an established practice, I will be sure to share a few tips that help you take your practice to the next level.If you want to join me for in person classes in Orlando, virtual or in person private sessions (Yoga, Meditation, Breath-work, Nutrition, Life Coaching and Mentorship) or this year’s International Yoga Retreat through Turkey October 1-15, 2022, visit
