Amazing Benefits of Surya Namaskar Asana with 12 Positions & Mantras

Surya Namaskar Asana (सूर्य नमस्कार आसन)

Introduction – Surya Namaskar Asana

 The sun is the fundamental basis of all the things visible in the world. All the planets and satellites are rotating on their fixed basis only by the force of attraction of the Sun. The sun is the biggest source of energy in the world and through it the activities of the world are conducted. It is due to the energy emanating from the sun that changes in nature take place, so the Surya Namaskar posture has been described in the yoga scriptures. Science also considers the benefits of Surya Namaskar asana.

The practice of Surya Namaskar asana brings flexibility in the body and benefits in various types of diseases. It has 12 positions. All positions make up for the shortfall in their first position. In this asana, breathing is done by stretching the body in different forms and by compressing and expanding the chest alternately. With this, the muscles, joints and spinal cord of the body are flexible and the internal organs are also massaged.

Perform 12 positions of Surya Namaskar asana sequentially. Along with Surya Namaskar posture, some mantras have also been told to be recited. These mantras are chanted while practicing, which increases its benefits. Practice Surya Namaskar asana in such a place where sunlight can fall on the whole body and practice this asana within 1 to 2 hours after sunrise and facing towards the sun.
