SURYA NAMASKARA (SUN SALUTATIONS) WORKSHOP
Sun Salutations are a series of postures is a Yoga practice incorporating a sequence of gracefully linked asanas that they contain standing postures, forward bends, a backbend, a strength move and an inversion. When done consciously, they can become hypnotically meditative, as you float from pose to pose to the rhythm of your breath.
These flowing practices increase flexibility and boost energy flow in the body. This is so essential also for preparing the body for asanas (yoga poses) through warming the body. The sequence has countless benefits helping us connect our movement to our breath while building strength, warmth, and awareness throughout the entire body. However, with improper alignment or lack of muscle engagement, we could harm ourselves.
So, this workshop is about exploring and building on the basics, the benefits and the beauty of the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) sequence.
In my workshops we look deep into each of the poses involved in this sequence. We practice special breathing techniques. I pay attention to each practitioner to ensure proper alignment, and teaching modifications to safely move through the poses, building warmth and energy in the body and the mind, as well as working towards connecting to our higher selves in the process.
