the suryanamaskara masterclass
Aug

9:30am 9:30am

the suryanamaskara masterclass

Suryanamaskara , or the Sun Salutation , is one of the oldest, most beneficial and complex series of any yoga practice -- yet often, it is overlooked or rushed.

Join Mollie Cox of Jala Yoga, and Joe Preyer as they break down the Hatha and Ashtanga variations of the Suryanamaskara, as well as explore the link between the breath, anatomical alignment and energetics within each pose.

In this masterclass, you will learn the philosophy & history of the Suryanamaskara method. You will meet muscles groups you didn't know you had. You will discover a whole new and energy efficient way of flowing through the Suryanamaskara. 
All questions you have will be answered, and variations to suit you will be given to practice. 

To conclude the practice, you will be serenaded by Joe on the acoustic guitar while Mollie massages your shoulders, neck and scalp with essential oils.

You will leave this workshop with a whole new perspective and awareness on how your body relates to the practice of the Sun Salutation, as well as knowledge of both the Hatha and Ashtanga method to apply to your own personal practice. 

You will also receive a take home sheet of the sequence to practice as often as you wish. 

Investment : $35 + booking fee

Bookings are essential to secure your place. Numbers are capped to ensure adjustments and attention to detail is possible.
