SUN SALUTATIONS

Sun salutations are also known as Surya Namaskara.  It is a sequence of poses that stretches your major muscles, cultivates concentration, and gives you a sense of meditation with movement to flow through your Yoga practice. Sun salutations raise energy and stamina while we inhale and exhale in co-ordination with the sequence.

Traditionally there are twelve steps to a Sun Salutation which can be incorporated into your Yoga practice or simply done on their own throughout the day when needing energy.

A great way to create “inner fire” to re-energize yourself to enjoy your day.

Namaste

 

What does Namaste mean?

This gesture is usually done at the end of class because the mind is less active and the energy in the room is more peaceful. It is done by bringing the hands together at the heart with the eyes closed and the head bowed. It is a gesture that represents the belief of the soul in one by the soul in another. Nama means bow and te means you…therefore Namaste means the connection between each other.

Yoga teacher’s do the gesture as a sign of gratitude and respect to the students for being part of their yoga class. It allows individuals to come together energetically with a clear mind from their yoga practice to connect so a union can develop.

It is a moment of respect and kindness towards all in the room.

Namaste from Believe Yoga Studio,

A FEW OF THE NUMEROUS BENEFITS OF YOGA

We are all hearing the benefits of Yoga and the positive impacts it can make on our lives. The ancient system of Yoga connects the mind and body through a series of postures, breathing exercises, and can also include as much or as little meditation as is your personal preference.

During the postures which are known as asanas, you are stretching and toning your muscles, and focusing your mind inward to help reduce stress. Yoga increases muscular strength, flexibility and endurance which is why so many athletes are using yoga to cross-train. Having trouble sleeping or with your digestive health???….Yoga can help with those issues as well….the benefits really are rewarding on so many levels.

Anyone can do yoga and reap its rewards. You do not have to be able to tie yourself in a pretzel…..you just need an open mind and want to move your body a little and introduce challenges only when, and if you want.

Yoga can cure your body, settle your mind, and skyrocket your energy levels!!! A regular Yoga practice can enhance your life over and over and over again…….why not give it a try and get that “YOGA GLOW”????
