About this trip

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. 

(If interested in the Chair version of the Sun Salutation, email us and we can set up another workshop)

Rajarajeshwari is an excellent teacher - really loved. Challenging programs have had an immediate positive impact on my practice.

Rajarajeshwari Lotus is so amazing! She is Deaf and uses ASL. She opens my eyes. I learned a universally about 5 Petals of Life. I am looking forward to next class with her. No words to explain more about her. Far and higher than my expectation!

I loved the "Stretch-In Yoga" class! I stretched places I never knew existed. I also became the most flexible I have ever been! I always leave class feeling a natural high and calmness. I recommend this class for all ages!

I truly appreciate the experience I had with the Deafhood Yoga. I have been doing yoga for years but this session taught me a lot about breathing techniques. I love the ambience and vibes I receive through the session. Thank you.

Namaste, the Pranayama Basics class, was phenomenal, and it is always great to go back to basics to check in with oneself. Gratefully, MB
