Mon. & Wed. Mornings at 10 am
Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation)
*NEW TIME 9:30 AM
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.
We will meet at 5:45 am. We will do some asana, chanting and meditation and watch the sunrise. Bring food if desired, blanket to sit on and dress for the weather. Sunrise is at 6:19 am.
There is no charge for parking at that hour and the meditation itself is free! If it rains, it is cancelled.
