I do "AM Yoga for Beginners" but that Rodney Yee one sounds good too. Also Yoga Journal has some good free exercises.

I'm a huge fan of YogaDownload.com's 20 minute yoga podcasts. They have a bunch you can pick from, and some include Sun Salutation series. They also come with handy little pdf files with pictures of each pose; so you can use that to remind you of poses, or print it and use it when your computer isn't around to listen to the audio file :)

Wow! I heart google. Just found this MP3 (15min) that walks you through the sun salutations. You can download it for free (itunes format) at http://www.elizabethsilas.com/yoga_you_can
_download.

Can't wait to try it tomorrow.

Cheers,

Great suggestions! emoticon I'll check out the DVD on Amazon.

Does anyone have good links to share for the sun salutations? It's been a while since I did them on a regular basis (my studio didn't really do them)...

I like both suggestions. A sun salutation is always a good way to begin the day.... you can do sun salutation A (without lunges) or B (with lunges).
The Rodney Yee DVD is good as well. You will grow to love a daily practice.

I practice to Rodney Yee's "AM Yoga for Beginners" DVD nearly every day, with an occasional "Abs for Yoga" DVD to mix it up. Both are 20 minutes long and are a GREAT way to start the day.

What about sun salutations to begin your day?

Hello everyone!

I'm recently back on the yoga bandwagon. In the past I've only done the 90min classes at my yoga studio. However, my schedule has grown increasingly busy and I've chosen to spend those 90min/day on other things. Does anyone have a simple 15min yoga routine they can suggest? I would like to have a set of poses I can do every morning to start off my day.

Would love to hear your recommendations - either your own experience or links to articles.

Cheers,
Ree
