☯ॐ
Surya Namaskara A - Sun Salutation 
Worship of the sun came to be because our Sun, the center of our solar system and closest star, is a powerful symbol of spiritual consciousness and life.  Sun Salutations worship that outer and inner sun.
The Namaskara are of ancient origin and serve as the foundation stone upon which the science of yoga rests. Sun salutations help gather the strength of the mind towards a single point of concentration and aid in mental focus.  Without its focusing of mental energies, yoga practice amounts to little more than gymnastics.
Surya Namaskara or the sun salutations are the foundation of our practice. Although they seem very physical Sun salutations are devotional in nature. Their main focus is on meditation, inhales and exhales, bandhas, and drishti. This is where we establish our moving and breathing synchronization which is the heart of this practice—it connects our body, mind, and breath calming the mind while energizing our body, making space for good thoughts, and building a firm foundation which will support the rest of our practice.
Tadasana (Mountain Posture)
Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute Posture)
Uttanasana (Standing Forward Fold Posture)
Ardha Uttanasana (Half Forward Fold Posture)
Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Posture)
Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward-Facing Dog Posture)
Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Posture)
Ardha Uttanasana (Half Forward Fold Posture)
Uttanasana (Standing Forward Fold Posture)
Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute Posture)
Repeat


Happy Solstice!
