Celebrate the Summer Solstice!

Happy Summer, Yoga Fam!  Summer solstice and International Yoga Day fell on the same day this year – super exciting and magical!  Leap into summer by meditating on how we throve off of the energy radiated by the sun.  Try the following sequence along with 5 rounds of each Surya Namaskar A & B (Half-sun salutation and full-sun salutation) to feel the warmth envelope your body & soul.  Maybe give meditation a try in combination with a sequence to deepen your connection with the sun, too!  If you are meditating, stand in Tadasana (Mountain) while facing the sun, or stay in ajaneyasana (low lunge) or Malasana (Garland; yogi squat).  Meditate for as little as 1 minute of as long as 30 minutes.  Bring your hands to heart center for several breaths to close meditation.

By the time you’ve finished, you’ll feel the energy of your inner sun radiating from your heart space.  Salute the sun (& yourself!)
