Surya Namaskar Recipe Day 32

I didn't have a chance to post this yesterday, but I wanted to share a new variation of surya namaskar with you. This one begins with five breaths in padangustasana, standing big toe pose (the first posture of the Ashtanga yoga sequence).

Benefits of Padangustasana
  • Stretches the hamstrings and calves
  • Relaxes the mind and helps to relieve stress
  • Stimulates digestion
  • Improves liver and kidney function
  • Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause
  • Helps relieve headache and insomnia
