DAY 2: SUN SALUTE, SURYA NAMASKAR A.
Why? Sun Salutes are how we kick start any and EVERY I.AM.YOU. class. They get your heart rate up, relieve stress, increase flexibility in the legs, open your shoulders, clear your mind, reduce belly fat, and pretty much make sure you are on your way to having the Slammin’ body and mind you have always dreamed of. AND they are FUN.
