on my mat: saluting the sun

One of my favorite things about planning a class is Sun Salutations; here is what I am loving right now:

- Beginning standing in Mountain at the front of your mat
- Inhale, sweeping the arms overhead, gazing at the thumbs
- Exhale, diving over the legs
- Inhale, Lengthening the spine
- Exhale, planting the hands and jumping to Down Dog
- Dropping both knees & inhaling to Cow
- Exhale, Lowering chest & chin
- Inhale, Baby Cobra
- Exhale, Child's Pose to Downward Facing Dog
- Inhale to Plank
- Exhale Chaturanga or Knees-Chest-Chin
- Inhale to Upward Facing Dog or Cobra
- Exhale to Downward Facing Dog; Stay for 5 Breaths
- Exhale, deeply bending the knees & hopping or stepping forward
- Inhale, Lengthen the Spine
- Exhale, Fold
- Inhale, Reversing your swan dive and returning to Mountain
- Repeat x3
