Happy January 18, 2022 – Asanas (Poses): Sun Salutations – Uttanasana & Parivrtta Uttanasana
Happy Tuesday Yogis! As our 30 Day Challenge group is working on a detailed breakdown of each of the poses in the Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations Series, we will review these Asanas along with our challengers. Or, if you prefer, you can practice a twisted/sister version of each pose during this series!
30 Day Challengers
Today’s Positive Practice suggestion
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to go “back to basics” with either Uttanasana / Standing Forward Bend or Parivrtta Uttanasana / Standing Forward Bend Twist. Both of these are great hip openers, and Uttanasana will always be special to me since this Asana helped me finally touch my toes!
Sun Salutations Asana – Uttanasana / Standing Forward Bend
Twisted/Sister Asana – Parivrtta Uttanasana / Standing Forward Bend Twist

You may want to try a block or bending your knees slightly if you cannot reach the floor – focus on keeping a straight back more than straight legs!
