Traditional Sunday Yoga

Chavi Bansal shares her personal full practice of yoga and meditation, weaving together practices taught by Gurus Omanandji, Bhagvaan Siddhart Kumarji, and Yog Acharya Gurudevji.

The surya namaskar, or sun salutation, is a complete yoga practice in itself. It awakens the energy in the solar plexus, and circulates it throughout the body to heal, energize and balance both body and mind. But beyond just using the surya namaskar as a purely physical system to stretch the body, incorporating mantras into your surya namaskar can help you bring a spiritual dimension into your physical practice. This spiritual dimension is much more fulfilling than the physical level of practice alone. It helps you tap into your healing power, gain vitality, and accelerate the process of rejuvenation.

This workshop series will begin with centering exercises, introducing pose, mantra, and breath work, and moving into a full Sun Salutation practice combining all three. Over the course of four workshops, we will discover how each pose connects to its specific chant. After opening and energizing the body, we will move into Pranayama (breath work), with a Guided Breath Meditation and finish the practice with short stories from different yogic texts to explore the underlying philosophies of yoga.

Throughout the series, Chavi will explain the underlying meanings and effects of the mantras, breathing techniques, and meditations, allowing you to develop your own ongoing home practice for years to come.
