With increasingly hectic work, and family lives, finding an extra two hours a day to practice yoga can seem impossible.
When you are too busy, it can be tempting to cut out your practice all together when you feel that you are not able to dedicate the time and focus you would like, the reality is, that at these busy and stressful times in life is when we most need a mindful practice. (Even if all you manage is a few minutes of breathing and sun salutations.)
So for you busy bees out there, we have designed three short versions of the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequence you already know, that take either 45, 30, or just 15 minutes. We have tried to keep the sequences fairly balanced so whichever you choose there is still a systematic progression of asana. This should allow you to keep the dharna (concentration) aspect of your practice.
Finally, note that it is important to keep the savasana for an appropriate length of time. We know it can be tempting to cut it short or cut it out altogether when you have limited time, but it is in this posture that you have the meditative self-awareness and can seal or complete your practice.
Enjoy your practice.
