The Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskara, is a sequence of yoga poses performed in a particular order to build heat in the body. They are often used as warm-up sequences for a yoga practice. Each movement is coordinated with your breath: Inhale as you extend, and exhale as you bend. Surya Namaskar, the Sun Salutation, is a series of 12 postures performed in a single, graceful flow. Surya namaskar is the most basic sun salutation. In the Ashtanga primary series, each practice starts with 5 rounds of surya namaskar. Energize your body as you stretch and strengthen all of its major muscle groups in sun salutations, or surya namaskar.
