Moving Meditation

June 28th - July 3rd 21

Last week we focused on certain aspects of Surya Namaskar - Sun Salutations.

This week I'm holding the focus on this simple sequence and trying to hold a meditative state throughout the practice.

Don't be fooled by it's simplicity. There is a refined skill in getting through the sequence - how you move, how you breathe - that requires your full attention.

Below are some of the reputed benefits of Surya Namaskar. Whether you believe in these or not you will great after a good few rounds. This sequence can form the foundation stone of your personal practice.
