I am beginning to appreciate fully the simplicity of the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) and the profound effect it has on the body.
Yogamygod! I found a long-forgotten CD that included a version of the Sun Salutation coupled with a meditation and on impulse
I used it for my practice this morning. Such a soothing and flowing series, yet the stretches within my body are deep and full of release. The pull of my hamstrings is achingly sweet this morning and not rusty and crippling as it was earlier in my practice. I am able to exhale and sink into the stretch, feeling my body just…surrender.
My body is clearly defined by the right and the left. My left side is full of tension and locked muscles that are slowly releasing and surrendering. Neck, shoulders, hip, knee and achilles. My right side is far more cooperative.
Ahhhhh. Maybe I’ll do a few more rounds. That was awesome. Right now? I smell a delicious cup of dark roast with a hint of cinnamon calling my name.
