yoga80 Moving Through Surya Namaskara A & B and 108 Sun Salutes with Reegan Lessie
It is often said that Surya Namaskar contains the entire practice within it. But what does that mean? If you examine which postures make up the sun salutations, you get a wide range of movements: forward bend, back bend, being still, lengthening the spine, grounding the feet, strengthening the upper body, stretching the hamstrings, expanding the lungs and more.
Surya Namaskar is a complete meditative technique which includes asanas, pranayama, mantra and mudra. This is why Surya Namaskar is the ideal way to warm the body at the beginning of a yoga practice.
Some examples of the workshop are listed below:
- Reegan will break down Sun Salutations A & B
- In Surya Namaskara “A” students will develop a better understanding of how to move through Ashtanga- Namaskara (knees, chest and chin to the floor).
- With Surya Namaskara “B” students will work on proper alignment in Chaturanga-Dandasana, moving from from high push-up “plank pose” into low push-up “four limb staff pose”.
Come join this workshop and improve your Sun Salutations, which are fundamental in warming the body up for the rest of your practice.
This workshop is especially Important for students New to Yoga. Don’t miss the opportunity!
108 Sun Salutes with Reegan Lessie
Even if you do not intend to practice yoga, the sun salutation is a great way to start the day, as it also works on the mind. By hearing the breath, holding the gaze (dristi), these movements allow us to center ourselves and to quiet our wandering mind.
The sun salutation is one of the most effective way to learn about the vinyasa, binding the breath to the movement. Every movement has a breath associated with it, an inhale when going up, and exhale when going down or constricting the lungs. Sometimes it takes years to be able to fully breathe through every movement of Surya Namaskar, but it is well worth it. Doing the Sun Salutations regularly will transform your yoga practice, your outlook on life and yourself.
Challenge yourself and celebrate the start of Summer with 108 Sun Salutes!
