Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned yogi, sun salutations (or Surya Namaskar) are a basic flow that activates the endocrine system and the chakras, the vortexes through which vital life energy (or Prana) is channeled, helping you to find balance, strength + flexibility.
Practice this simple flow 5 times in the morning and 5 times in the evening for a week and notice the difference in your body. How do your joints feel? Where is your mind? Did you increase flexibility? How is your energy level? Check in with yourself.
