Surya Namaskar also known as Sun Salutation is a set of 12 dynamic exercises. It is an age-old yogic practice which contributes to mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. The namaskar is an obeisance to the Sun God or Surya. Surya namaskar is normally performed early in the morning, at daybreak, or in the evening, when the sun is setting. It is accompanied by a specific breathing pattern and chanting of mantras. The benefits of surya namaskar include weight loss, regulated menstrual cycle, flexibility of muscles, improved concentration, self-confidence and reduced depression. A complete step-by-step interactive guide of Sun Salutation is shown.
