Surya Namaskara Sun Salutation

The sun is the center of our solar system, and without its energy and warmth, we wouldn't be able to exist on this planet. This vinyasa is a devotional (not to mention great exercise). Surya namaskara (pronounced SOOR-yah nah-mahs-KAH-rah) offers thanks and greetings to the sun, and although it can be performed any time, it is particularly appropriate and wonderful when performed at sunrise, out-of-doors, facing east. Surya means "sun," and namaskara literally means "taking a bow.

The sun salutation energizes, strengthens, and tones all the major muscles and organs in the body.
