What if there was an exercise that took no more than 40 minutes a day, could be practiced anywhere, was effective for virtually every body type and age and required no expensive equipment?
Now that would be a perfect exercise.
RE-Introducing the Sun Salutation – a sequence of poses that are said to be over 2500 years old and form the basis of virtually every yoga practice and can be seen inside a variety of martial arts practices as well. These poses are easily adapted to accommodate everyone from the most fit to the elderly and the physically challenged. A small sampling of the benefits attributed to the regular practice of Sun Salutations include:
Fat reduction (weight loss)
Healthful sleep and lowered anxiety.
Strengthened abdominal muscles.
Improved muscle flexibility.
Spine and waist flexibility
This upcoming DVD breaks down the Sun Salutation to get the viewer on the road to better fitness and a cleared mind. Filmed on the shores of the Hudson River with the Manhattan Skyline as a dramatic backdrop, we break down each of the 12 poses that make up the traditional Sun Salutation – with adjustments for viewers with special needs – to create a simple, yet potent, recipe for your physical and spiritual growth.
...and of course, you will find my personal favorite - a salutation infused with Qi Gong.
