The Kong Flow is a Prasara Yoga Flow that is based on a variation of an animal-based movement called the Kong. I’ve been practicing this over the past week for fun – following my coaches advice to try one motor-moron movement each day. The Kong Flow is unique in that it actually self-compensates via hip flexion and extension, making it an excellent Prasara flow for the hips. It’s short and sweet and lot’s of fun to hop and roll around!

If you’d like to learn the Kong Flow for yourself, my coach, Scott Sonnon put together a thorough tutorial, including some simpler progressions to make learning it fairly simple:

Prasara Yoga is not only a unique method of yoga, in that it brings new expressions and techniques for yoga, but it also changes your perspective of yoga in general. If you have a new, fresh perception of what yoga can be like (instead of what it should be like), then it enables you to unlock your creative potential and express yourself more freely – and I don’t mean in a zen-like “wishy washy” sense.
I put together a Prasara Flow of my own this past week, my first, refined original creation – haven’t come up with a name yet, but will soon and will post a video demo to the site for you to see.
In the mean time, if you’re interested in exploring YOUR own flow, then feel free to check out some of Scott’s official Prasara materials:
TACGYM Biomechanical Exercises (AKA Prasara Lego’s) – BodyFlow contains dozens of exercises that serve as transitional pieces in Prasara Yoga. This was my first exposure to Prasara and helped set a foundation for better yoga practice in the future.
Prasara book and Instructional DVD – this is an intermediate level Prasara Yoga program that I would recommend for yogi’s and yogini’s, or someone who wants to truly internalize a Prasara practice for themselves.
So, how do you feel after trying the Kong Flow?
To your health and success,
