SUN SALUTATION PRACTICE WITH PROPS

The word vinyasa means “to flow.” When we practice vinyasa yoga, we flow smoothly (or as smoothly as possible) from pose to pose, linking our movement with our breath. Sun salutations are one example of a vinyasa practice. Traditional sun salutations tend to be quite vigorous and build heat in the body by warming up all of the major joints.

In this class, I will show you ways to modify a sun salutation practice to make it more accessible and ultimately more pleasurable for your body. These adapted variations still give you the same benefits of a traditional sun salutation practice which include:

  • Building strength

  • Energizing the body

  • Warming up the muscles and joints

  • Warming up the spine

  • Focusing the mind

LENGTH: 40 minutes

ABOUT THIS PRACTICE:
This class shows an alternative to a traditional sun salutation practice. You will need to beable to put weight on your hands and knees for this practice.

BENEFITS:
energizing, strengthening, grounding, builds stamina, heart opening

PROP RECOMMENDATIONS:
yoga bolster, blanket and two yoga blocks - if you don’t have a bolster you can stack some pillows and wrap them up in a blanket.
