Turn up the heat with a challenging sequence from Tim Miller
Ashtanga Yoga is already rich with Sun Salutations in the form of two sequences: Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B, which weaves in Chair Pose and Warrior I. Tim Miller, director of the Ashtanga Yoga Center in Carlsbad, California, was inspired to play with the form and to invent his own take on the Sun Salutation. “I call it Sun Salutation C; it’s like an improvisational jazz riff, using the basic structure of Sun Salutation B and then expanding it in interesting ways.” Miller practices Sun Salutation C within Sun Salutation B once a week to keep things fresh, and also practices it on its own from time to time—it’s a complete practice unto itself. Sun Salutation C has lots of challenging twists, so try it if you’re looking to move a bit beyond your comfort zone.
