The first 3 sessions of this Short Course break down the twelve steps of Surya namaskar, and then put them together again..
The sessions in this Short Course and good stand-alone sessions by themselves. This session explores the backarch of Sun Salutation: Urdhvamukhasvanasana. This positions is sometimes difficult to do repeatedly especially for those with shoulder and wrist weaknesses and injuries. We spend time in preparing the arms and shoulders for the back arching positions, and also look at a couple of alternatives that are more workable in such conditions. In this session we do the full cycle of Surya Namaskar multiple times.
In this last session of this Short Course, we also spend some time preparing the arms and legs before the fast actions, and some pacifying actions after.. This session has multiple back arches. People with shoulder and back weakness are advised caution.
