Welcome to “Yoga – Biomechanics & Alignments of Sun Salutations” your gateway to a profound journey of self-discovery and holistic wellness. Whether you’re a beginner, a senior seeking gentle movement, or simply someone looking to enhance your yoga practice, this comprehensive course Biomechanics & Alignments of Sun Salutations, is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills to elevate your Surya Namaskar experience to new heights.

Deep has a vast and down-reaching wealth of knowledge about the proper Biomechanics & Alignments in modern Yoga practice. Getting the alignments of Sun Salutation right not only ensures amazing benefits during your regular practice, but also is one of the easiest ways to make your students happy as a Yoga-teacher.

This Course teaches the Biomechanics & Alignments of Sun Salutations. Sun Salutation or Surya Namaskar is a dynamic, energetic and vitalising sequence of interlocking Yoga Poses. It is probably the most taught and practices Yoga Sequence of all. That is so for various good reasons.

You will learn Biomechanics & Alignments of Sun Salutations as well as how to breathe the right way during the complete sequence of Classical Sun Salutations, Ashtanga Sun Salutation – A & B in this course, as well.

Why should I acquire a firm and established knowledge about practicing and teaching Sun Salutations, Biomechanics & Alignments?

A Yoga-class that includes a strong practice of Sun Salutations is beneficial and satisfying for every practitioner on the mat – from beginner to advanced student. A few rounds of the sequence already makes it worth to step on the mat.

It opens up the entire body and prepares the students for any other Yoga practices and advanced poses. The Sequence was designed to work on all body parts, every organ, and your energy system and on your chakras.

Sun Salutations are a complete workout for mind, body and soul.

According to some Yogis, practicing sun salutations alone, is sufficient to develop all qualities of a advanced student; including a calm, present and silent mind. The Safety Alignments & Demonstration of Yoga Sun Salutations

Why This Course?

In yoga classes, I often observe students grappling with confusions as they attempt asanas incorrectly, missing out on the numerous benefits while inadvertently putting themselves at risk of injury. Recognizing this common challenge, I’ve taken the initiative to craft an alignment-focused course, beginning with a solid foundation: Surya Namaskar.

Notably, the diversity of Surya Namaskar variations can add an additional layer of bewilderment. In this course, we will not only address these variants but also provide clarity by unveiling their names and distinctions.
