Mantras of the Sun:
Meaningful Movement in the Sun Salutation Practice sun salutation series

You have probably practiced the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) series hundreds of times, but most people have never learned the reason why we practice them! Discover the meaning behind the movements and deepen your awareness of these basic postures. 

Designed to be a complete Yoga practice, the original 12 postures of the Surya Namaskar series each have a mantra, meaning, and chakra focus to honor the many ways Light infuses our lives. Practiced with this intention, Surya Namaskar becomes a full-body prayer and celebration of the Life-giving Sun and the Light Within.

Yoga teacher, Nicole Becker reveals the depth of the practice on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels. The 2-hour workshop will include:
brief discussion of the history of the Surya Namaskar and introduction to the mantras
- review of 12 postures one by one to address proper alignment and modifications
- chanting the Gayatri mantra & Surya Namaskar mantras
- Surya Namaskar series accompanied by meditative recording of an Indian Chorus singing the Surya Namsaskar mantras
- closing meditation

"After years of a daily yoga practise, your Sun Salutation workshop helped me finally really understand how to do graceful sun salutation transitions. I also enjoyed going deeper into the practice and learning the sun salutation mantras." - L.Z.
