In Surya Namaskara B you’ll learn optimize your work in Utkatasana (Fierce Posture) working with synchronizing squatting and coming up with the sweeping upward and downward reach of your arms. You also learn how to tune up your foundation in Virabhadrasana A and to work on your lunge. You’ll also explore the parallels between extracting power from your arm reach in this position and the arm reach in Utkatasasana.
