Interested? Angela took a moment to answer some of the most common questions students have about Sun Salutations, and what you can expect to see in this two-part series.

What are Sun Salutations?

The Sun Salutations sequence, also known as Surya Namaskar A, is a structure of poses performed with the guidance of the breath.

Is that the same as “take the vinyasa“? 

For the most part…

What will I learn in the “In’s and Out’s of Sun Salutations?”

We will focus first on the breakdown of each individual pose, understanding the mechanics behind the more complex poses such as Chaturanga Dandasana and Upward Facing Dog.

Then we will look at how to transition from one pose to the next.

Why is Chaturanga so hard?

It requires a lot of “whole body” strength. Not just the arms (the triceps, in particular), but also the core and legs.

Is this class right for me?

You would take this class if you have questions about alignment in any of the poses in the Sun Salutations sequence. Or if you want to work on transitions, such as jumping back or jumping forward.

You should also take this class if you want to learn/review the actions of Chaturanga or Upward Facing Dog. Both are tricky poses, and can be compromised during vinyasas. This is an opportunity to break them down and target each individual action.

You may also think about taking this class if you are starting to transition from Basics to All Levels.
