Posted by Jeevan ॐ Mirthu Gupt on October 23, 2011 at 12:35 AM


     Surya Namaskar(Sun Salutation), provides all of the key health benefits of yoga in a very succinct package.  It is a holistic exercise that provides physical health benefits, but also mental or emotional as well as spiritual benefits.


     The obvious advantage of Surya Namaskar is the workout it provides for the muscles, but it also benefits joints, ligaments and the skeletal system by improving posture, flexibility and balance.  In addition to these physical benefits,Surya Namaskar practice stimulates and conditions virtually every system in the body. 

     It is good for the heart and stimulates the cardiovascular system.  It oxygenates the blood and helps strengthen the heart.  It is is also beneficial for the digestive system and the nervous system.  It stimulates the lymphatic system and supports respiratory system health, as well.


     Practicing Surya Namaskar also benefits the Endocrine system and enables the various endocrinal glands to function properly.  These include the thyroid, parathyroid and pituitary glands as well as the adrenal gland, testes and ovaries.


     Like most forms of exercise, Surya Namaskar provides mental benefits to regular practitioners.  You will feel wonderful after performing the Sun Salutation.  It is relaxing and rejuvenating, and tension, stress and anxiety melt away as you perform Surya Namaskar.


     Surya Namaskar is an excellent alternative to caffeine and other stimulants. If you suffer from insomnia or sleep disturbances, you will find practicing Surya Namaskar aids in helping you fall asleep without the need for depressants.


     With regular practice, Surya Namaskar is an excellent way to manage stress and alleviate depression.  You will expend a tremendous amount of energy as you move through the two sets of poses.  Surya Namaskar teaches you to concentrate, and learning to achieve the poses can often feel incredibly gratifying.
