The Surya Namaskar in the right way
Sun is the source of all energy.
Salutation to the sun or Surya Namaskar is thus a prayer to seek the energy or prana from it and vitalize the body, mind and soul.
Surya Namaskar has a deep effect in detoxifying the organs through copious oxygenation and has a deeper relaxing effect. It is a series of 12 physical postures.
These alternating backward and forward bending postures flex and stretch the spinal column giving a profound stretch to the whole body.
