This Month in Class

August 2019


Thursday, 8/8 at 6:45 pm with Mary

Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation)

Yoga & Meditation with Roy


In this month’s Saturday morning class, along with our postures and meditation, we will focus our practice on Sun Salutation which is a series of yoga postures performed in a sequence, coordinated with the flow of breath.  In Sanskrit it is called Surya Namaskar.  Surya is one of the names of the sun.  Namaskar means “worship” or “honoring.”  So, in its essence Sun Salutation is enacted not only as a physically beneficial “flow” exercise, but also as a spiritual “honoring” of the external Sun as well as the light of Consciousness within.  Through its practice one is drawn closer to inner peace and freedom.  Handouts will be given.  All are welcome.

Next Session Sunday, 8/11!
