It’s enlightening to understand the meaning behind sun salutations found in yoga.
As we sweep our arms up and bow forward, we honor the earth, the heavens, and all of the life in between. As we lower our bodies, we connect with the earth. As we rise up from the earth, we stretch through the atmosphere once more, reaching for the sky. As we bring our hands together in Namaste, we gather the space of the heavens back into our heart and breath, acknowledging that our body forms the center point between heaven and earth.”
