Yoga videos on my youtube channel

Prasarita Padottanasana

If you have visited my facebook page recently, you may have noticed that I have started adding short video sequences of some of the most commonly practiced asanas on youtube.

I have been unable to present these video sequences in the past as I could not find someone who could shoot and edit the videos.

For the last few weeks we have been shooting, on the average, one short video every week and putting it up on youtube.
