Sun Salutations are a great way to warm up the body before moving into deeper holds (asana). This is a very energizing practice which grounds us and expands our awareness of sensations in the body. In this practice we are sharing gratitude for the sun and all that it brings us. Enjoy gentle variations or practice with intensity. Always remember to practice with compassion and awareness. The purpose of yoga is not a tight butt, but quite the opposite. The purpose of yoga is to expand your mind, body and soul.
