Sun Salutation A is the most basic yoga movement in Ashtanga Yoga. This clip from Kino MacGregor breaks the movement down for beginners and builds up to a full Sun Salutation A. Shot on amazing Waiheke Island in New Zealand.
The Sun Salutation is the foundational movement of the Ashtnaga Yoga method. Performed at the beginning of each practice this flowing series is meant to awaken the inner fire, agni, of purification and is also a salutation to the solar fire. At first the fire of purification burns through impurities and then after years of practice it transforms into the fire of awakening itself.
