Sun Salutation Workshop with my students in Qingdao! Breaking down Sun Salutation 1. This Sun Salutation is often associated with Hatha Yoga and it’s not as popular as it used to be. It’s a traditional Sun Salutation with 12 positions, making it perfect for the Vedic Sun Salutation chant. I love this Sun Salutation and practice it daily. Grateful to my teacher, Dharma Mittra for showing me this sequence and teaching me the traditional variation as well. Grateful to my teacher, Mr. Ramaswami for teaching me the Sun Salutation chant. The Sun is the brightest and lightest thing in our world. It is a symbol of the brightest and lightest part of ourselves, which we sometimes call our inner light.
