Suryanamaskar is one of the most effective yoga practices that can help you to remain fit and healthy. In this lockdown, it is very hard to go to a gym to maintain a fitness regime. Well, not to worry, you can get fit with suryanamaskar at home without much of trouble.
With sun salutations taking over the world globally, and so many things driving yoga forward, the best workout one could carry around the world is good old surya namaskar.
The Surya Namaskar or Salute to the Sun or Sun Salutation in yoga is an exercise that includes an arrangement of twelve gracefully linked asanas. The asana sequence originated in the Hatha Yoga tradition in the 9th century in India. The basic sequence involves moving from a standing position into Downward and Upward Dog poses and then back to the standing position, but many variations are possible.
There is no need for you to do all the asanas. If your body tells you to do a few of them slowly on one day and 54 rounds on the following day, that’s inner intelligence and this is the time for you to tune into that.
Surya Namaskar not only helps you to lose weight, but has a bunch of benefits like offering you a glowing skin, aping your immunity, upping your metabolism, stretching your abdominal muscles to move away that beer belly as well as ensuring a regular menstrual cycle.
So, start practicing Surya namaskar at your home in this lockdown.
