My Yoga Definitions

Sun Salutation’s for me involves (One move per breath)

  • Arms up
  • swan dive down to forward bend
  • lift up the heart then back down
  • Right foot back to runner stretch
  • left foot back to plank
  • lower to the floor
  • Up to Sphinx, cobra or up dog
  • Up to downward dog
  • Right foot forward to runners stretch
  • Left foot forward to forward bend
  • Sweep back up
  • Repeat with left foot back/forward first.

Depending on how I feel, I might include crescent moon on both side or a gentle backbend before swan diving down.

Moon Salutations:

  • Runner stretch on one side
  • Up into Triangle
  • Warrior I
  • Warrior II
  • Goddess Squat
  • Reverse order on the other side.

I typically hold each pose for 5-10 breathes.

    thanks for the blog comment to bring me here…

    i really appreciate that you put moon salutations in here. much less often used, but really nice. ive heard it said that while sun salutations move in a forward line, moon salutations move in a circle. not sure what that means metaphysically, but i like the distinction 🙂
