Surya Namaskar/Sun Salutaion: Yoga, Mantra, Health Benefits


  • Surya Namaskar is a series of yoga poses performed in a continuous flowing sequence. It aimed to improve the strength and flexibility of the muscles.
  • Surya Namaskar/Sun salutation can be done by anyone and at any time but on an empty stomach.
  • Morning time is best to do the Sun Salutation so that you feel fresh all the day.
  • You will like to think of the sun in Surya Namaskar as the light within us all. The more we nurture that light by loving ourselves and others. The brighter we shine and the more we can spread that light to the world.
  • You can also use Surya Namaskar as a form of prayer where the sun represents the divine, and you express your gratitude to God for all your blessings.
  • You can pay tribute to the literal sun for starting a brand new day full of potential and for giving life and energy to all living things.
  • It’s a beautiful way to set the tone for the rest of your day, by remembering that life is so much bigger than ourselves. Each new day contains so much more than our to-do lists and obligations and that we have something really special to share with the world.
