Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) and their benefits
Foundations of the primary series postures, and modifications for your personal practice
How to harness your inner power through Bandhas (energy bonds) and their use in postures
Ujjayi breath, and its purpose in posture practice
followed by a full Primary Series practice (90 minutes). Suitable for students of all levels seeking to challenge themselves with a traditional and time-tested style of Hatha yoga practice.
