Yoga for Beginners: Sun Salutation
01/21/2010 | 12:00 AM
The benefits of yoga are many: it builds flexibility and muscle tone, reduces stress and unifies body, mind and spirit. In hot summer weather yoga is the ideal replacement for vigorous cardio that can wear out our bodies in strong sun and heat. Welcome the onset of summer by practicing the Sun Salutation, a basic yoga sequence that releases endorphins and builds core strength. To start, try the beginners' version of the Sun Salutation: in this video, Kurt Johnsen of Yoga For Life will lead you through an upward crescent lunge, downward crescent lunge, and plank pose. Remember to control your breathing throughout. Inhale as you extend and exhale as you contract. The sequence is sure to raise your spirits and get you set for summer.
