About the Event
Am I doing this right?
Sun Salutation is one of the most important yoga practices. In this workshop, Arielle will break down the sequence of Sun Salutations, and how to flow with more grace and ease by utilizing the breath! You will learn a plethora of modifications, with and without props! Hands-on adjustments and assists will be provided to help guide you into alignment. Bring water, as we will be practicing and flowing throughout this 2-hour event! There will also be a brief history & philosophy discussion, highlighting the origin of Sun Salutations and why we still practice them today.
A little background:
Translated from Sanskrit, Surya means “sun,” and Namaskar means “to bow down to” or “show gratitude.” In ancient tradition, sun salutations were used by Hindus during morning prayer and worship rituals. Over time, they’ve evolved to become a key part of conditioning the body, and calming the mind. This helps yogis disconnect from the distractions of daily life and enter a meditative state ahead of their practice. Surya Namaskar is a graceful sequence of twelve poses linked by a continuous flowing motion with the breath. Each pose counteracts the one before, stretching the body in a different way and alternately expanding and contracting the chest to regulate and harmonize the breathing.
At the physical level, the practice of Sun Salutation stimulates the metabolism and the digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and reproductive systems. It provides a good cardiovascular workout, stretches every part of the body, lubricates, and strengthens joints and muscles. This sequence takes your spine through almost every possible range of motion and when integrated with the breath it encourages deep and rhythmic breathing, increasing blood to the brain and bringing mental clarity. To move in a dynamic sequence helps the mind focus on one thing alone – the movement of the body. This will help to quiet the mind.
