Add Fun and Variety to Your Flexibility Routine With Sun Salutations

Add some fun and variety to your stretching routine with Sun Salutations, and let your yoga "flow."

New drills, exercises, and advanced competitions: you practice all of them in your strength and conditioning training—and the variety helps your game move forward in a positive direction.

So why does your stretching program seem stuck in a rut? Break out of it with Sun Salutations, a series of yoga poses that will stretch your entire body, add some fun to your flexibility routine, and improve your confidence as well as your performance.

Sun Salutations

Perform the following yoga poses in an uninterrupted "flow."

  • Child's Pose
  • High Plank
  • Forward Bend
  • Mountain Pose
  • Chaturanga
  • Downward Dog
Review instructions for all of these poses in STACK Yoga For Athletes: Yoga 101.
There is no "perfect stretch." But before or after your next practice or game, try the Sun Salutation for posture and form, and focus on your body and execution.
