Sun Salutations! rev 2Yoga Sun Salutations Workshop:

Sunday, September 17, 2:00 to 3:45 pm, YOGA SUN SALUTATIONS!  All Levels, $15, Pre-Registration Required/$20 at the door.  Space is limited;  FOUR places still available.

Want to learn an energizing warm-up YOGA sequence that is foundational to many yoga traditions and included in most classes?  Ready to build strength and encourage ongoing mobility in all of your major joints?

Come practice Surya Namaskar A, and be introduced to Surya Namaskar B, so you can sense growing empowerment in your body and feel confident in both your home practice and walking into almost any yoga class.

 

We’ll be studying variations of Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutations A), including special emphasis on transitions which are rarely taught with precision, such as Astangasana (knees-chin-chest), in order to align our pelvis and learn to carry loads in such a way that are safe and build strength and therefore stamina.  We will explore the difference between Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) and Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog).  We will review pointers for each of these asanas (poses) and, most importantly, how to choose which one is best for you, when, and why!  You will also practice  Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limb Staff Pose) and explore alternatives as well.

 

All participants will receive a study guide to take home to help you build your own practice.
