Salute the sun.

Yoga is a great way to start your day. Roll out your mat in the morning and "Salute the sun".

“I understand, I see, I speak, I love, I do, I feel, I am”

2: Raise hands overhead, press pubic bone forward, tighten buttocks and open chest – inhale

4: Right foot back to Lunge – press heel of back foot, lengthen spine – inhale
5: Bring left foot back to Plank positions, long spine – hold breath in
