We bow to the sun in gratitude every morning as we rise and appreciate the breath of life.
The Sun Salutation—Surya Namaskar—means praising the sun. In the series of 12 postures prana (our breath) is distributed throughout the body from our root to our crown.
All of our chakras are activated with the sacral chakra, the power center of creativity and emotion, being central.
