Yoga: sun salutation

A home practice of yoga can provide many benefits. It can help maintain the effects of structural integration and other bodywork, help reduce and manage stress, and help manage pain. A few minutes of yoga done several days a week is a worthwhile investment in your overall health.

I’ve found, however, that students and clients seem at a loss in deciding what poses to practice on their own. With too many choices, the idea is often put aside. One recommendation I have is to practice the sun salutation sequence. It includes a good assortment of poses and takes about 8 minutes to complete if you use this video by Yoga Vidya.

Another plus is that the sequence can easily be modified to accommodate limitations.  A variation done while seated takes only 2 minutes (Tara Blackburn, Wilmington, NC).
