Sun Salutations to Embody Your Passions & Truth

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Dec 18 2010
Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) are a wisdom tradition in and of  
themselves.  Traditionally practiced in the morning, but can be done  
at any time, they are a way of opening into the major muscle groups of  
the spine, legs and arms whilst also celebrating the dawning of a new  
day.  This daily ritual teaches us that every day is like a rebirthing  
~ and we are also constantly being rebirthed and evolving to more  
fully embody our passions and truth.  Our slow beginning builds into  
classical Sun Salutation B (Surya Namaskar) and then the flow really  
takes flight through triangle (Tirkonasana), Warrior (Virabhadrasana  
2) & Extended Side Angle (Utthita Parsvakonasana), Temple (or is it  
Horse??), twists and yes, handstands (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) in the  
center of the room thank you very much!!  Blessings and love xo
