Back to Basics
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Sun Salutations are a microcosm of the asana practice as a whole in that they contain standing postures, forward bends, a backbend, a strength move and an inversion. When done skillfully, they can become hypnotically meditative, as you float from pose to pose to the rhythm of your breath. Whether you're new to yoga or you've been on the mat for years, breaking down the poses into all of their minor elements can deepen your practice and improve your experience.
What will the workshop cover?
This workshop will focus on the poses that make up Surya Namaskar A & B (Sun Salutation A & B) as well as the transitions between them. We will take turns demonstrating and practicing the poses and transitions, learning how to incorporate modifications and variations that work best for your own body.
Who is this workshop for?
For those who are just starting their yoga journey or those who want to fine tune their sun salutation alignment and breath work
