Traditionalists trace the roots of modern Sun Salutations back to rituals called Namaskars performed more than 3,500 years ago, but a few crucial pieces of the original custom never quite caught on in today’s mainstream practice. Want to bring the missing links back into your practice and approach Salutations as more of an all-in-one practice than a warm-up? Join Shiva for an intensive workshop that will deepen your experience on the mat, no matter what style of yoga you practice.
In this six-week master class, you will explore various Namaskar practices as a way to drop into your heart and let go of whatever holds you back. Once you experience Namaskars as a whole-body movement meditation, you can cultivate an inner flow that leads to transformation.
This course qualifies for 6 non-contact continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.
