In YOGA FIT this term we will study the postures of the classical ‘Sun Salutation’ with an emphasis on alignment and correct posture throughout the flow. Sun salutations are a series of yoga poses performed in a continuous flowing sequence and intended to improve the strength and flexibility of the muscles, cultivate concentration and give a sense of meditation in movement. Where students have tightness or limitations in flexibility to perform the ‘true’ postures we will look at modifications. We will work on postures to develop the necessary dexterity in the body to be able to perform a version of the flow that is safe. There are many benefits to practising the Sun Salutation including reduction of weight around the middle of the body and balancing the hormones.
