Service Description

* Discounted workshop passes available Sun Salutations Mastering the Basics. This 2 ½ hour workshop will introduce and demystify the yogic practice of Surya Namaskar. Surya Namaskar is a sequence of twelve postures that when put together with the breath creates a rhythmic flowing moving meditation. This workshop will introduce the twelve poses, breaking each one down step-by-step for correct alignment and balance. We will explore adjustments, adaptations and the use of props to support the practice and aid transitions. It has been said that this set sequence of postures dates back more than 2,500 years to a time when ancient cultures revered the sun. Sun Salutations are believed to have been regarded as a literal salute to sunrise and were perceived to ready the body for all that would happen during daylight. Surya Namaskar -Improves posture -Tones muscles and improves flexibility -Boosts energy -Enhances and stimulates blood flow -Stimulates the lymphatic system, improving the immune system. -Improves breathing -Clears and calms the mind -Stimulates digestion and detoxification This workshop is aimed at the novice yogi, those who want a refresher or those who prefer a slower pace in Surya Namaskar. The session will include gentle warming up exercises, breath work, and a gentle approach to the 12 poses and the transitions between them. (with adaptations for body shape, mobility, fitness level and health issues). All laced together with a little background history and stories.
