Surya Namaskar C – Sun Salutation C

Surya Namaskar C or Sun Salutation C is another variation of the Sun Salutation A. This sequence is not practiced in the traditional Ashtanga Series, but is seen in Dharma Yoga and many other types. To me, this is a different rhythm that I’m used to, with some added backbends, so I like that challenge. For beginners, this Sun Salutation might be a little more friendly- with no chaturanga!


Benefits of Surya Namaskar:

  • Strengthens the body and improves muscle tone
  • Improves posture
  • Improves flexibility
  • Increases blood circulation and warms up the body
  • Helps relax mind, and build mental focus
  • Reduces stress and anxiety


I won’t post any beginner’s tips for this one, but see Sun A and Sun B blogs for some more tips!
