Sun salutations are generally practiced to warm the body during yoga sessions. However, they also can be used as the foundation for building an entire class. Utilizing three traditional sun salutations (surya namaskara) as a method of fusing the main focus and traditional wisdom of iyengar, ashtanga, vini, vinyasa, kundalini, shivananda, pre/post-natal, and classical-eclectic hatha yoga, Diane and Kathy Lee introduce a number of creative, progressive, and fun sequences to help you design classes that will meet the needs of you and your yoga students. The core objective of Sun Salutations: Blending Yoga Forms is to introduce ways to incorporate the main focus of many of today's most popular styles of hatha yoga while designing well-rounded classes for various populations. The physical "core" is addressed on many levels and "fused" with the methods and wisdom from these core yoga styles. This eclectic yet classical foundation is "Yoga-Core-Fusion." Among the topics covered: some popular hatha yoga styles and their primary focus, basics of three traditional sun salutations (surya namaskara), and example salutations blending hatha yoga styles.
