Ashtanga Yoga Sun Salutation A
The Ashtanga Yoga Sun Salutation A, known as “Surya Namaskara A” in Sanskrit, is a foundational sequence of movements used to warm up the body and synchronise breath with movement. It consists of a series of 9 postures performed in a fluid, continuous flow. Each movement is coordinated with either an inhalation or exhalation, creating a dynamic and energising practice. Sun Salutation A is a fundamental component of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition and serves as a starting point for many yoga practitioners.

Jivamukti Yoga Warrior to Sage Sequence
The Jivamukti Yoga Warrior to Sage Sequence is a dynamic flow that combines several postures to create a graceful transition. It typically involves moving from a Warrior II pose into a Side Angle pose, then transitioning into a Sage pose. This sequence helps to build strength, flexibility, and balance while promoting mindfulness and breath awareness. It’s a signature sequence in Jivamukti Yoga and is often used to cultivate a sense of inner power and stability.
