Glorious Surya Namaskar
(Lecture, Theory and Practise workshop)
Let’s get together and share practise, learning and playful exploration of yoga!
Why do we do Surya Namaskar aka Sun Salutations? Are they really just a warm up? A cardio exercise? Or are they something deeper…. A ritual, a prayer? What is it that makes them such a unique and fundamental part of most people’s everyday practise? Some say that they hold all of the yoga technique we ever need.
Have you ever questioned where they came from or how they evolved?
This simple yet profound practise is used and altered by many different styles of yoga and individual students to provide varying effects and benefits, and can help to form the basis for a self practise.
We will …
