Surya Namaskara (also known as "sun salutations") is the foundation of physical asana practice and is the core of the Ashtanga system. If you are learning yoga or have no opportunity to meet with a teacher it is best to start here.
All new students to the yoga shala will be instructed in surya namaskara prior to learning any static asana postures. This may be helpful to know in case you are new to Ashtanga and want a "measuring stick" as to the difficulty level which you can expect. While new students rarely can complete the surya namaskara in quite the way that David Garrigues does in the video below, it is nonetheless the most fundamental set of movements (vinyasa) in the Ashtanga system.
