Welcome back to another episode of Tranquil Waves Yoga on the Muskegon Channel with Caitlin Anderson. This is our 4th episode and Caitlin is sharing her passion for yoga with us in the hopes that people see that her practice is so much more than ways to move and stretch. Yes, they are sure that...but this art has been treasured by so many the world over for centuries for all of it's benefits, mind body and spirit.
Each week, Caitlin introduces us to a new practice. This week, it's part one of two! How's that for cool? 4 weeks in and we're already getting a 2 parter? Hey, there's a world of knowledge here and remember back to the earlier mention of "centuries of benefits"? They are real and Caitlin has got plenty of time to show you how they are done. We hope that as her audience grows here, that you are able to take some of these practices and apply them to your daily life to the betterment of your over all well being.
This week, Sun Salutation A. A quick look online for the definition of this practice finds that Sun Salutation, also known as Surya Namaskar, is a traditional yoga practice that in today’s modern culture is made up of 12 poses that are linked together to form a flow. Sun Salutations originate over 3,500 years ago and were traditionally a spiritual practice and used as a way to worship the sun, and therefore were traditionally practiced at sunrise. In today’s culture, Sun Salutations are commonly used in yoga practice as a warm up or are intertwined into yoga routines, especially Vinyasa classes. Yes, we here at the Muskegon Channel are learning right along with you, so we're looking things up as we go. :)
We head to Caitlin's home studio for today's episode. Make sure you drink plenty of water and consult a Dr. before you begin this, or any other work out program.
Next week....Sun Salutation B. We truly hope that you're enjoying and using these beginners approaces to yoga. Caitlin is on her way to establishing her own studio and is currently offering one on one instruction through digital meeting. She's working hard to bring her passion for this art to all of us and if you'd like to know more, please visit her website linked below for more information and to connect directly with Caitlin.
