Yoga’s sun salutations are among the most refined and effective movement meditations for health and well-being ever created. Originally practiced to connect to the sun’s vitality, this precise combination of forward bends, backbends, and inversions awakens the breath and promotes circulation and inner balance through the flow of prana shakti—our creative life force.
On Sun Salutations, internationally acclaimed vinyasa flow yoga teacher Shiva Rea presents a complete at-home course on these fundamental movements. Join Shiva for a dynamic sequence of asanas (postures) that includes guidance in yoga breathing and a rich background of world beat and ambient music.
With inspiring instruction in basic alignment and flowing variations, Sun Salutations gives you the latest DVD technology to create an evolving home-yoga practice suited perfectly to your personal needs.
