Surya Namaskar or Sun salutation is a lot more than just praying to the Sun and exercising. It relaxes and rejuvenates you, like aromatherapy. It’s a combination of 12 asnansa that activate your body, mind and chakras. It provides you energy throughout the day. Apart from the perfect posture, proper and timely inhaling and exhaling adds to the benefits. Usually, 12 Surya Namaskar are performed and with each performance, a mantra is chanted, which is offering a prayer to the Sun. You perform a perfect Surya Namaskar only when you practice all three of these processes together. If you are not aware of the names of this asana, when to breath in and out and which mantra to chant with each Surya Namaskar, read and practice the following steps and soon you will perfect the Surya Namaskar.

1. om mitrāya namaḥ
2. om ravaye namaḥ

Surya Namaskar is performed early morning, during the Sunrise, this helps us to soak our body in the Sun rays and absorb the Vitamin D, which is rarely available in other edible ingredients. It not only helps to reduce the extra fat from the body and enhance the flexibility, it also helps all our internal organs to function properly, regulates the blood circulation, eases childbirth and reduces anxiety and insomnia. Surya Namaskar is beneficial to everyone irrespective of their age and gender. It is advised that even a pregnant woman should perform Surya Namaskar. So burn up an incense and start with Surya Namaskar.
