Classical Sun Salutations in a Yoga Mala

A yoga mala can combine any multiple of 108 sun salutations.  Most commonly, a mala is completed using classical sun salutations A and B.  My favorite way to practice a yoga mala is to complete 12 rounds of (7) sun A + (2) sun B.  The postures of these two classical salutations are described in detail below and illustrated at the bottom of the page.
