The Sun Salutation
"The Sun Salutation... limbers up the whole body.... It is a graceful sequence... performed as one continuous exercise. Each position counteracts the one before, stretching the body in a different way and alternately expanding and contracting the chest to regulate the breathing. Practised daily it will bring great flexibility to your spine and joints and trim your waist...." (page 34)
