Happy Asana August 4, 2023 – Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)
Bonus Daily Asana Challenge
We are in the middle of a daily Asana practice challenge for August! Today I recommend Sun Salutations, or perhaps Moon Salutations if it is evening!
I usually practice with the Yoga Studio App rather than streaming services, so I can download my favorite classes and use in areas without WiFi or phone signal. Today I am doing a round of guided intermediate Sun Salutations.
Today’s Positive Practice suggestion
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to again perform the traditional Asana series – Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations Series.
If you struggle to make Asana practice a daily habit, I STRONGLY suggest doing 1-3 rounds of Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutations first thing in the morning. This is recommended for a standard Ayurvedic morning routine and is my own personal secret to getting some Yoga in every day.. I cannot always make time for an hour, but I find I have a much better day if I find 5 minutes in the morning.
Also, focus on incorporating Diaphragmatic Breathing ie breathing into your belly rather than your chest, and try to get a “flow” with one deep inhale or exhale for each pose as you are moving through this Asana series.. we will be revisiting Ocean Breathing tomorrow, which is my preferred Pranayama style during Asana practice.
