Among the all around yoga exercises is the 12-step salute to the sun. Do it twice or once when you get up in the morning to help alleviate stiffness and invigorate the body. Multiple repeats at night can help you to relax; insomniacs frequently discover that six to 12 rounds help them fall asleep.
1. Stand with your feet slightly apart, palms together, thumbs against your torso.
2. Hold for three seconds.
3. Exhale and bend forward, until your fingers touch the floor outside your feet, keeping your knees straight. ( in case you can not touch the floor, go as close as you can.)
4. Inhale, bend your knees, and put them there, if your fingertips are not outside your feet on the floor.
5. Ensure your belly is pulled in.
6. Both knees, bend to the floor, bend in the air with your hips, lower forehead and your torso to the floor.
7. Now look up, bending your head back, then lifting it and inhale, followed by your upper torso, then lower torso.
8. Exhale and lift your hips until palms and your feet are flat on the floor and legs and your arms are directly in an inverted V location.
9. Inhale and bring your right foot forwards as in location 4. The left leg should be nearly straight behind you, with its knee somewhat off the floor.
10. Slowly exhale and bring your left foot forwards next to your right one. Straighten your legs and stand, attempting to keep your fingertips on the floor, and attempt to touch your head to your knees as in location 3.
11. Inhale, lift up your arms and stretch in location 2. Do not forget to tighten your buttocks. Hold for three seconds.
12. Relax. Duplicate the show.
