Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutes) – Weekly Intermediate Class 20

Focus: Surya Namaskar (sun salutes) have traditionally been associated with early morning practice. This stimulating sequence of movements are great for raising energy levels. They can help to shake off lethargy, build strength, improve blood circulation, and bring mobility to muscles and joints.

This class starts with the basic surya namaskar movements at a slowed down pace. You are guided in how to modify the positions if you are working with limited flexibility. Once familiar with the basic movements you are able to flow through the stages more dynamically. Standing poses are eventually incorporated into the surya namaskar sequence. This class will be well suited to early morning practice, or anytime when you are looking for an energy boost.

Key Poses: Surya Namaskar
