Ways to Attend

Prostrations are a dynamic, devotional practice of movement, mantra, and visualization.

Prostration, or pranama in Sanskrit, is the practice of bowing to the divine.

Many of us learn Surya Namaskar—the salute to the Sun—in our yoga classes. But Surya Namaskar is heating and cannot healthily be performed in all climates, by all people, at any time of day.

Prostrations are “tridoshic.” They are healthy for anyone in any condition at any time.

The benefits of prostration

  • Experience natural devotion and surrender
  • Instill grace in your everyday movements
  • Balance the five elements in your body, energy, and mind
  • Enjoy an ancient practice along with millions of people around the world

What you will learn

  • How to perform full-body prostrations, half prostrations, and chair prostrations
  • Mantra, mudra, and visualizations to accompany and empower prostration practice
  • The inner meaning of prostration practice

This practice is suitable for anyone.
