Sun Salutations, Surya Namaskara, सूर्य नमस्कार
Based on the classical Hatha Yoga lineage from Sivananda, this two hour workshop shares the Surya Namaskara known as the Sun Salutations. This yogic sequence identifies the Sun as the soul and source of all life. The solar/sun energy in your body is your masculine energy. The lunar/moon energy in your body is your feminine energy. Everyone has both. This is vital to keep in balance to nourish our mind, body and soul.
This is an excellent warm-up exercise performed in the morning, consisting of 12 different spinal positions that moves the body in all directions. The Sun Salutations give a varied range of vertebral movements to the spine and promote flexibility in the limbs of the body. 300 - 500 muscles are used. The Sun Salutations aids the body in the rapid gain of flexibility while regulating the breath and focusing the mind. This sequence also creates a good flow of pranic energy in the body and thus sets into motion an energetic feeling that remains throughout the day.
Through this yoga practice, we apply the most basic breathing technique that is taught in the Pranayama (basics) workshop which will be briefly reviewed here.
