Surya Namaskar – Sun Salutations

We will soon break down each of the Asanas in the Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations Series. May is Correct Your Posture Month, so I suggest focusing on a particular part of your body alignment through this series. This week I am focusing on neck alignment – keeping my ears over my shoulders, and ears back and up.

Today’s Positive Practice suggestion

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to again perform the traditional Asana series – Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations Series. Remember to focus on incorporating Diaphragmatic Breathing or Ocean Breathing, and try to get a “flow” with one deep inhale or exhale for each pose as you are moving through this Asana series.

The next few days as new Yogis doing our 30 Day Challenge are learning this series, we will re-examine variations of each of the poses and modifications in the Sun Salutations Series.. stay tuned!
