For those of you who come to my Monday night class regularly, you will be familiar with our kneeling sun salutation – this is it in a nutshell. It’s suitable for anyone really and a lovely way to stretch and wake up the body. No difficult back bends involved, just focus on the breath.
Inhale arms overhead to start, exhale forwards into child’s pose, inhale onto hand and knees and arch forwards, exhale into downward facing dog, inhale hands and knees down, exhale round your back and roll back to child’s pose. Keep a gentle lift in the abdominal/pelvic floor muscles, particularly as you move up and down from child’s pose.
