Surya Namaskara is an ancient way to begin the day with the worship of the sunrise. This page is dedicated to ancient prayer flows to and deep appreciation for each day.
All of these Surya Namaskara 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 because your whole upper bodies weight falls upon a few discs. It is also important to lift mildly during in the Cobra Flow part. This will make a big difference causing the Sun Salutation to be either beneficial or harmful to your health.
I hope you enjoy these Sun Salutations as much as I did. What a beautiful way to practice spirituality."
