Elevate and energise your day with the Aerial Sun Salutation! By Camille Shakti Semiotaite
A Sun Salutation is a sequence of organically linked asanas that are synchronised with the breath to create an intelligent and graceful flow of movement.
Sun Salutations are often used as a warm-up for a more challenging yoga class, but they can be practiced by themselves as a short practice. Usually, the repetition of the cycles is between 6-12 rounds.
In aerial yoga, you will notice that Sun Salutations will differ from the classic version on the mat as we use our aerial yoga silk/hammock sometimes as a help, or sometimes to add more challenge, or even just for a different experience of the pose.
When you practice Aerial Sun Salutations, the first two cycles (one cycle - one side) move slowly, stopping on each position to adjust and focus on the alignment of the pose, so that you get familiar with the sequence. Then continue with more dynamic cycles where movement is connected together with the breath.
Benefits When we practice Sun Salutations, we stretch and awaken the whole body, improving our strength and flexibility. Breathing with focused intention also has the potential to reset the mind and body for the rest of the day, helping us to feel uplifted and rejuvenated. Let’s go together through this CamiyogAIR adapted version of Classical Sun Salutation with the foot in the silk!
