Nurture program with online support
Rediscover this ancient practice and learn how to use it in a unique, fun and interesting way.
I mean, hey, aren't you tired of being bored to death in your Astanga class, endlessly moving through jarring down-dogs, up-dogs and jump-backs, wondering when will it end!!???
If that's you, maybe it's time you tried a more graceful and gentle approach?
Traditional Sun Salutations (Surya Namaska) has proven itself to be an incredibly effective weight loss, toning and stretching system for thousands of years. However, modern people have different needs than ancient Indian folk. We sit for long hours, we're less active, and the pressures of our existence overloads the nervous system with levels of stress unheard of in ancient India.
We want everyone to enjoy its benefits so we made it more achievable and more safe for modern people. The aim is to scaffold you to do 10 rounds of Surya Namaska daily because this is where all the benefits start to kick in.
With this slightly modified version, we've ironed out the bugs, so to speak, making it a more achievable practice that most people can perfect in a shorter amount of time.
Also included are a number of rarely taught tricks that enable you to transition between postures in a more graceful way.
The great thing about this approach to Surya Namaska is - you get all the benefits without having to spend years learning how to perfect the practice!
How do we do this?
We provide a unique scaffolding program that has engaging videos and text explaining everything you need to know about Surya Namaska in detail. Also, there’s online support to answer all your questions so you can master the technique more quickly with grace, style, and ease.
To nurture your senses, all footage is set in a beautiful jungle studio in Phuket. You'll hear the natural sounds of village life in the background - birds, roosters, and even some enchanting traditional calls to prayer.
