This is the first of a series of dates to share the practice in a structured and ordered way way. Surya namaskara is the foundation of this yoga tradition and it is within this aspect that we shall explore the other principles & practice of the form. We will observe the components: ujjayi breath, bandha, dhrishi and vinyasa (breath & movement synchronisation) that is connecting each posture. Breath is the thread on which each posture is placed to create a necklace of postures.
