All of the Sun Salutations below flow with the breath in continuous
movement. At any time you can hold a pose and explore it. This can
be done before flowing through the whole Sun Salutation continuously
or after doing it continuously a number of times and then flowing
once again or at the end of the salutations. One pose may be held or
many postures can be held. The secret is to always explore many
methods and monitor the response within.
If sun salutations aggravate your lower back it is essential to
mildly tilt in the backbends and also in the Cobra Flow part.
I hope you enjoy these Sun Salutations as much as I did. What a beautiful way to practice spirituality."
