Karuna Surya Namaskara

65 mins

Karuna translates from Sanskrit as compassion or mercy. When applied to the energy of Surya (the sun) we invoke the ever compassionate Surya who gives light and life unhesitatingly to all that need it.

Through practising Surya Namaskara in this class we also allow ourselves to become that light of Surya in other people’s lives. Giving selflessly whilst remaining full and energised.

Through this new variation of the Dru Sun Sequence, we'll be taking the beautiful (yet often internal) emotions such as love and gratitude, and through posture and intension, transform them into kindness and compassion. 

In this way, we create activity and an outward expression of our internal emotions AND allow our light to shine even more brightly into the lives of those around us.

This class contains warm ups, the Karuna Surya Namaskara variation and a beautiful savasana (deep relaxation) attuned to the Sun energy.

Thank you for this wonderful time so beautifully worded. What an excellent way to start this new year. I feel calm and at one with everything and am so grateful for the way you guided the class in movement and relaxation. at the end of each day I do send out thoughts of love and compassion to others. I realise I can also sent loving kindess thoughts to situations too. Thank you.

Wow - what a beautiful class......thank you. It was a perfect way to end the year with the calling forth of compassion. It is one I would like to bring with me into 2022. Really enjoyed the additions of Utkatasana and Charity pose and found the slower pace very powerful. I feel open and relaxed and also nicely spacious - thank you!
