It’s Superbowl Sunday! Before we plant ourselves in front of the television for hours, show your body some love. Flow along with me through this Sun Salutation.
The Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskara (SOOR-yuh nah-muh-SKAR-uh), is a series of poses performed in a sequence to create a flow of movement. Sun Salutations build heat in the body and are often used as warm-up sequences for a yoga practice. These poses lengthen and strengthen, flex and extend many of the main muscles while distributing energy throughout your body. Sun Salutations serve as meditation in movement, reducing depression, anxiety and stress while building mental focus and concentration as it links movement with breath.
Repeat this sequence as many times as you desire. Be sure to alternate legs for the lunge.
