Excellent simple illustration of your basic sun salutation -- Surya Namaskar A -- at left.

You'll likely find variations of this series from class to class and teacher to teacher, and sometimes you might even encounter a freestyle class that begins sans salutations, but as far as I'm concerned, there's no better way to get the blood moving and to really get into the rhythm of your breath (and out of your head) than a few simple rounds of Surya A. And it doesn't matter where you are; whether on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, or in a hotel room in suburban Philadelphia, your sun salutations will go wherever you do.

And that's the real beauty of this ancient series, as far as I'm concerned. So drop and give me ten.
