Vinyasa Yoga: Sun Salutation

Vinyasa or flow yoga is when you synchronize your movements to your breath, and the moves all flow together. Breathing is very important, because you must move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale through the nose.

Sun salutations is an important part of the Vinyasa yoga practice. Firstly, it can be a great workout for the whole body involving stretching, flexing and toning the muscles, as well as an excellent exercise for weight loss. It can also offer numerous health benefits such as relaxing the mind and thus leading it to meditation. Secondly, Sun Salutation is an opportunity to express gratitude to the sun, the giver of life on earth!

This sequence is an excellent way to start your day. Try doing these moves in the morning when you wake up to get your heart rate pumping and your muscles stretched. You may enjoy doing it outdoors.
