Master Class with Tom Larkin : Surya Namaskar - Hanuman’s Gift of Devotion

  • Downtown Yoga 515 South Main Street Memphis, TN, 38103 United States (map)

In this master class we explore the power of Hanuman’s devotion to his first teacher Surya. Through the ironic story of his youthful exuberance, Surya not only strikes down young Hanuman but in turn learns the wisdom of Bhakti (devotion) from his most dedicated student. Through lecture, story, and an in-depth breakdown of Surya Namaskar A, B and other variations, we will dive in and discover the light of the sun not only illuminates the earth but can be the spark to illuminate our own inner Bhakti. Open to all levels of students.

The purpose of yoga is to enact a change...be that in the way we think, act, or live.  But more so it is to evolve.  A teacher is here to be a guide and help you navigate this evolution. To walk with you down your own path to a greater Self. 

 

I came to the full experience of yoga after many years in the business world creating visual art, playing sports, performing music, studying philosophy, and earning an Art degree from Belmont University.   After my first teacher, John Charping, convinced me to enroll in the Southern Institute for Yoga Instructors' 1000-hour 13 month long teacher training program, I realized I had been doing many various aspects of yoga for most of my life in some form or fashion.  

 

This really made me think and then laugh.
