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!
