Sun Salutations!
 

If you've spent anytime on the beach this season, the continuous trance of the waves may still be in your ears. It's almost as if the ocean is breathing: exhaling the waves to the shore; inhaling to draw the waves back. In sun salutations, we follow the wave of our breath; inhaling to open up the front of the body, exhaling to release the back. By focusing our awareness on the breath, we are less concerned about doing it "right" and more interested in making our sun salutation into a moving prayer.
