Sūrya Namaskāra: Introduction to the Origins of Embodied Yoga (Session 3. Pradaksina)

When: August 25, 2018 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

“Sūrya Namaskāra: Introduction to the Origins of Embodied Yoga” Christopher introduces the forgotten role of Surya Namaskāra (Sun Prostrations) from unpublished source texts, a practice once central to Haṭha Yoga practice but left out of the few texts which have come down to us. As a result, Surya Namaskāra is mistakenly thought to have been invented by Krishnamacharya and his students of the Mysore school in the early 20th century. Students learn how Surya Namaskāra was once central to daily Hatha Yoga ritual, and how it was engaged in a specific twelve-part postural sequence (vinyasa) at each of the 8 directions, while circling around one’s practice mandala (self-consecrated practice space) in the beautiful rite known as Pradakshina (sacred circumambulation). Additionally, we explore how the Pradaksina Namaskāra practice was originally inspired by the Indian dance tradition, and included spontaneous dancing, singing and reciting poetry meant to empower one’s connection to the divine source. Session 1. The Dance of Namaskāra How the Pasupata Lineage Transformed Yoga into a Life Affirming Practice Within a century or so of the Yogasūtra‘s composition, an avant-garde religious group rose to the forefront of Indian radicals. Known as the Pasupatas, these quasi-ascetics[...]
