About this video
A short tutorial showing you how to practice Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutations, variation B). After a few rounds of Surya Namaskar A, you will be warmed up and ready to practice Surya Namaskar B. It’s considered a warm-up sequence to prepare the body for more intense yoga poses and flows.
Move from posture to posture with either an inhalation or an exhalation. It’s best to breathe through your nose if that feels comfortable and try to lengthen each breath. Allow your breath to lead the movement. If you are new to the practice, it may be best to start with 2 or 3 rounds. More seasoned practitioners are welcome to practice up to five rounds.
Practice at your own pace.
