Spring Equinox Yoga workshop - Surya & Gayatri with Dory Walker
Sunday 20th March / 10am - 12pm
at Clifton Library, Clifton, Bristol, BS8
The Spring equinox is a point in the year when day and night are of equal length / in balance (4.30am, 20th March 2016) before the Surya ( sun) energy moves into dominant transition. We will explore this momentary equilibrium of energy to bring balance to breath, body and mind.
The workshop will focus on the practice of Surya Namaskar and the significance of the suns energy in our yoga practice. Sun salutations offer a complete practise encompassing asana, pranayama, meditation and mantra.
Alongside Sun Salutations we will explore the Gayatri Mantra which honours the sun in feminine form. The mantra is a request to the Sun to dispel the darkness of ignorance and provide clarity and strength.
With these classical practices of Surya Namaskar and Gayatri mantra we look at how the power of prayer, our intentions and creating ceremony on our mats, can elevate our practise into the essence of yoga.
