Surya Namaskar – A Route to Healthy LivingDownload PDF
Surya Namaskar, as the name suggests is a ‘salute to the sun’. It can do wonders to body, if performed in the right way. It is widely believed that one can control mind and body through Surya Namaskar. It also helps to improve concentration and focus when practiced on a regular basis. Disease as the name suggests – not at ease (Dis-ease). According to Ayurveda, it occurs because of an imbalance of Vata (Air), Kapha (Phlegm), and Pitta (Bile) in the body. Surya Namaskar maintains the equilibrium of these elements and hence, perfect health. We use only 35-40% of our muscles to carry out our daily activities, whereas 95% of our muscles are active while doing Surya Namaskar.
