After you finish watching the World Cup and before the Celtics and Lakers tip off, hop off the couch and celebrate Sun-day with a few sun salutations.

Sun Salutation A (shown here) contains lengthening, strengthening, back and forward bending movements. Sun Salutation B, which provides a bit more lower body emphasis, is coming soon.
As always, I’d love to know what you think, especially if you’re a beginner or pass along these How-To clips to beginner yogis.
