Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) is a fundamental sequence of postures to many methods of asana practice. Originally practiced as a salutation to the Divine, Surya Namaskar is an excellent way to begin an asana session as it strengthens, energises and balances the body, mind and breath.
In this workshop, we will break down each asana that forms the namaskar sequence; explore the links between them; learn safe transitional movements; develop an understanding of alignment; learn modifications to suit all levels and explore the conscious connection between breath and movement. We will specifically focus on three forms: Surya Namaskar A, B and the classical salutations. The session will offer you a strong foundation and understanding of this energetic sequence helping you to deepen your practice.
