In this workshop you will learn the foundational components of Sun Salutation A, including breath work, core strengthening, ancient yogic philosophy, and strengthening the mind/body connection. We will begin with a short vinyasa practice to warm up, followed by a brief discussion and a “posture lab” in which students apply what they have learned to their own practices. The session will conclude with a Q&A and a brainstorming session for students to request future workshops.
This workshop is for all bodies; you do not have to have set foot on a yoga mat in order to participate. Talia’s ultimate goal is to help students feel safe and empowered as they continue (or begin) to flow through their practices.
