Do you LOVE Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), or would you LIKE to?  Want to increase your confidence and stamina in ANY yoga class?  Then this is the workshop for you!

Surya Namaskar is an energizing warm-up sequence and the foundation for most yoga traditions.  It builds strength, stability, and overall mobility.  And it is simply loads of fun!

HI passport size, 2 x 2 inWelcome, yoga enthusiasts and those that are simply curious about yoga!  Would you like to feel more ease and steadiness so you can approach your day with joy?  Yoga can help, and Surya Namaskar, also known as Sun Salutations, are particularly well-suited to achieve such radiance.  I am Virginia Hill, the driving force behind AHA Yoga, and I am thrilled to connect with you about Sun Salutations in this upcoming special event.  Surya Namaskar sequences are very popular because they work all the major joints, warm all major muscle groups, and synchronizes breath with ongoing, fluid movement.  But, let’s face it:  for a lot of us, Sun Salutations are a bit of a fuss.  We may feel intimidated that we are not doing it just right, or our bodies may have demands different than the other students in the room. Or, maybe you have been doing this sequence a while and are ready for refinement!  If any of this sounds like you–or if you, like me, simply need more yoga in your life!–come join us for an invigorating afternoon.

In this second Sun Salutations workshop, we will begin with an accessible, very modified Surya Namaskar A with low lunges.  NO YOGA EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY; you just need basic mobility and the capacity to easily get up and down from the floor.

 

You will learn how to pause between poses, and also experience variations that make getting into and out of postures more comfortable.  We will gradually learn more challenging transitions, alongside options for modification.

 

Want to push yourself?  Yes, please!

Then we will practice Surya Namaskar B, which integrates Utkatasana (Chair/Fierce Pose), a great workout for the quads, as well as VirabhadrasanaI (Warrior 1), a superb stretch for tired and clenched Psoas (one of your hip flexors) as well as a subtle balance pose.

 

We will move through this sequence at an increasing pace, knowing that YOU always chose the poses and pace that is just right for you.  Then, we will slow down and learn in detail Chaturanga Dandasana (4-limbed staff pose) and Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog).  Though most folks often focus on the arms, we will first work core strengthening exercises. Secondly, for shoulder girdle integrity, we will review the importance of the Trapezius and Anterior Serratus.

You’ll savor all sorts of delicious options for each pose, alongside specific exercises to help you build these muscles so, over time, the tougher transitions begin to flow.

 

 

Come experience how proper alignment and inspiring practice brings you more ease and stability, so you not only enjoy your time on the mat more, but you approach your days with a sense of openness and delight, of mind as well as body.
