Surya Namaskar Discipline
Surya Namaskar is one of the most important yoga practices. This morning practice is designed to work on all body parts, every organ, every system and every chakra. It is also believed to be the most efficient way to connect with our core inner strength. The body is equipped with the innate intelligence to produce energy from the sun directly. The mind, through the solar plexus; the body, through physical movement; and the spirit, through the chants, all get a boost from the practice of Surya Namaskar. Therefore, it is a complete workout for mind, body and soul.
Slow Flow & Meditation
In a typical Slow Flow class, you will practice about half the number of poses you might practice in a Flow class. The pace is meditative, emphasizing peace and calm in body and mind. We hold poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. But don’t mistake Slow Flow for “easy” or “gentle” Flow. Although stretching is often emphasized in Slow Flow, there is plenty of room to work strength in the longer holds. If you have a busy mind and moving slowly is a challenge for you, these classes may be challenging for you. But, this is one of the main reasons we practice yoga. We all need to find moments to slow down and experience some calm in our lives.
Morning Flow Yoga
Once you make practicing yoga in the morning a habit, your body becomes accustomed to getting up at the same time each day. This means you will awake feeling more energized and alert. Practicing yoga early in the morning will warm up your digestive system and help nutrients move more easily through the body, causing it to metabolize carbs and fats more quickly.
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa is a style of yoga where poses are strung together to form one fluid sequence of movement. Although Vinyasa is often considered a fast and physically challenging practice, it can also be soft and gentle. Moving with the breath can also mean slowing down your transitions with deep inhales and slow exhalations. As opposed to other styles of yoga like Iyengar or Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow classes do not have a set sequence or a certain amount or type of poses to get through. No two classes are ever the same, and often the sequences are creative and playful.
