Sun Salutations Four Directions Online Yoga Class David Moreno preview

Surya, Chandra, Bhumi Namaskar & The Four Directions

Sun Salutations are but one of the flow sequences that are based upon a prostration – a humbling of one’s self before a power greater than one’s self – be that a king, a great spiritual teacher, a sacred mountain, river, tree, or to the giver of life, the sun.

While most yogis are familiar with Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), few know the philosophy behind it or the variety of sun salutes. Fewer yogis are learned in Moon Salutations (Chandra Namaskar) or Earth Salutations (Bhumi Namaskar). Each of these sequences has its own philosophy and practices and come from yoga’s nature based, or shamanic based foundation and can be done daily.
