Buddhism and Yoga
Illustration by Shannon Orcutt The Ultimate Guide to Yoga Lingo
I have been teaching yoga for 17 years, and one of the most frequent complaints I hear from students and yogaphobes alike is that they don’t have enough time for practice, so they avoid it altogether. Avoiding a regular practice of stretching will never get you the healing benefits that come with the work. Even if you only do one pose a day, you will make a huge difference in your body, brain and well-being. So I am here to entice you to try ONE pose — just this one. You don’t need to memorize a sequence. You won’t even need a lot of space or yoga props.

Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation is a most complete series of postures. It is a very good exercise which takes only a few minutes to do and serves as a warm up routine before the practice of yoga asanas.

Yoga Journal's Yoga Poses channel has a comprehensive index of all the most popular yoga poses. Explore different asanas, or build your own sequence with our interactive sequence builder.
