Surya Namaskar – the Sun Salutations – Winter Solstice Workshop

With Carolyn Higgs

Saturday 22nd December 2012

9:00am – 10:30am ~ £9

‘Celebrate the Winter Solstice ~ Surya Namaskar with Bija Mantras’

This special Winter Solstice class just before Christmas is being run by our very own Shambhala teacher Carolyn Higgs.

Surya Namaskar – the Sun Salutations – comprises a series of twelve Yoga asanas performed in sequence and is a well-known practice in most Yoga classes. However, what is less well-known is that each of the asanas in the sequence has a specific drishti (a focus point which also aids in alignment) and a mantra (chant) associated with it. The full mantras describe various aspects of the sun and are chanted in the relevant posture as you move slowly through the sequence. When doing the postures more quickly, it is easier to chant the bija (seed) mantras. In this class, we will be exploring the sequence: the asanas, their drishti points and the bija mantras.

The cost of this class is £9. Class passes can be used however and members are not charged. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment.
