Sun salutation is a yoga exercise that gracefully links 12 asanas and is popularly called Surya Namaskar. While the exercise is ideally done in sets, beginners are encouraged to start with two to four rounds and gradually work up to as many rounds as possible at any time of the day.


The video was signed: “108 surya namaskar is ready, grateful, grateful and ready to eat my pumpkin pie tonight (sic).” On the other hand, the photo was captioned: “Never felt better (sic)”.



One round Surya Namaskarperforming 12 asanas burns approximately 13.90 calories. This yoga asana is known to strengthen not only the muscles but also the back.

It revitalizes your body and refreshes your mind if done at sunrise. Performing it during the day instantly energizes the body, while doing it at dusk helps you relax.

Performing Surya Namaskar also helps to obtain radiant skin as it improves blood circulation. Other benefits of exercise include lowering blood sugar levels, improving metabolism, and ensuring a regular menstrual cycle for women.

Ancient yogis believe that this asana also activates a second brain called manipura chakra or solar plexus located in the navel. As a result, a person’s creativity and intuition is believed to increase.

Dedicated to the Vedic-Hindu sun deity Surya, the yoga asana includes a sequence of 12 powerful yoga poses that together complete the Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation. These 12 steps are performed in the following order: Pranamasana (Prayer Pose), Hasta Uttanasana (Raised Hands Pose), Hasta Padasana (Standing Forward Bend Pose), Ashva Sanchalanasana (Lunge Pose), Chaturanga Dandasana (Plank Pose), Ashtanga Namaskara ( eight limbs pose), Bhujangasana (cobra pose), Adho Mukha Svanasana (face down dog pose), Ashva Sanchalanasana (high lunge pose), Hasta Padasana (standing forward bend), Hasta Uttanasana (raised arms pose) and again Pranamasana ( prayer pose).

Concerning Setubhandhasana, bridge pose or setu bandha sarvangasana, it stretches the chest, neck and spine. It not only strengthens the back, glutes, and hamstrings, but it also improves circulation, relieves stress, and soothes the brain.
