Yesterday morning, I incorporated Yoga’s Sun Salutation (surya namaskar) into my morning routine. My goal is to do 2 sets of the sun salutation every morning as a way to increase overall flexibility and strength.
A couple of years back, I took some Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga classes at the local community college. Basically, it’s like Yoga except it incorporates flow with breath, almost qigong like. Instead of holding fixed postures for long durations of time, postures are held for a certain number of breaths.
I have to admit, after doing a couple of sets in the morning, I felt very energized and ready to begin the day.
