You may have heard me reference “Sun Salutation” several times, and wondered what that was. It is yoga, and one of the only regular exercises I do 😀
Anyway, my mother taught me how to do it, and I have been doing 11 repetitions every morning for almost three months straight now. It wakes me up, gets my jumpstarts my circulation, and helps my stay relatively flexible. It’s also really quick; 1 repetition takes maybe twenty seconds.
Sun Salutation is really easy to do, and as few as only 5 repetitions already gets your heart beating faster. I really recommend it, and I thought I would illustrate the steps for anyone who’s curious.
NOTE: Do not attempt this in socks, especially on a hard wood floor! I have no idea why I drew this person wearing socks. Maybe because it looked cute?!
I recommend repeating ten times. I only do eleven because I like to do an extra for good luck 😉
Some more NOTES: a) This is going to be extremely frustrating at first. b) Do this before you eat breakfast. c) Everyone does this slightly differently, and this is just my version that I learnt from my mother. Try watching different youtube videos to see how other people do it, and you will find the perfect mixture for you. d) Each time you start a new repeat, you will lunge with the second foot. So if you started on your right foot the leaqding feet for each lunge would be R then L,L then R, R then L, L then R… and so on.
Feel free to ask me any questions… I realize this is complicated!!
Good luck, and peace,
