Salute The Sun For Better Health

When I was in 2nd grade, I lived in Nashville, TN. I had a friend named Katie, who was from England, and her father was a songwriter. It was the mid-1970s, and one of Katie’s father’s songs had just been picked up for a Coca-Cola ad. The song was an overnight sensation that has stood the test of time:

I’d like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony.
A song of peace that echoes on
and never goes away.

It’s a beautiful sentiment, isn’t it? I lost track of Katie when we moved to Washington, DC in 1979, but I’ve never forgotten her, or that song. It still gets stuck in my head, and makes me want to teach the world to practice yoga and eat real food. I’ve made it my mission this summer, to do exactly that!

If you’re tired of dieting, trendy workouts, and scheduling your days around exercise classes, join me for 100 Days of Crazy Healthy. It’s a free health challenge that will simplify your life, and empower you to get healthy for good. We will take 14 weeks to develop daily yoga and real food habits that are sustainable.

Sun Salutation B, as pictured in this video, is where crazy healthy begins. Practicing this sequence daily, memorizing it, and owning it, is essential for creating a personal yoga practice. It’s so simple, you might not think it will be effective, but knowing this sequence by heart will empower you to practice yoga anywhere and everywhere you go!

We will add additional poses to this foundational sequence throughout the summer, to create a full 30 minute practice, but only after you are really familiar and comfortable with Sun Salutation B.

Join me and my family on 5/26 as we begin the challenge. And don’t forget to post photos of your journey on my Facebook page. We are all leaders in this crazy healthy life, and our commitment to the challenge will help others be successful, too!
