Isn't it stunning to find something so miraculously appealing, only because of the results and the benefits it emits? Yoga is that powerful force which attracts nurturing, growth, and balance of an individual. Gone are the days when you could ignore your health and wellness because the environment took care of you. Now that the climatic conditions are critical, materialistic tools are spread all over, pollution has broken world records, and the habits of people are not at all in favor of their own health, let alone others. It is time to develop habits which have become necessary to implement regularly.

Suryanamaskar, or Sun Salutation, is a connected sequence of 12 different yoga poses. It is an overall cardiovascular workout with immense benefits on the body and mind. For best results, practice a minimum of 2-5 sets, on an empty stomach early in the morning. It is a gesture to express your gratitude towards the Sun, and welcome abundance into your life. Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh provides you a better understanding and deep knowledge about yoga and how can you balance your life and make it simple. Here are the 12 Poses of Suryanamaskar and how they can boost your health.

Prayer Pose (Pranamasana)

Pranamasana begins the Suryanamaskar sequence. To do this, stand straight on the ground or a yoga mat by keeping your feet aligned or joined. Open your heart chakra by resting your shoulders and expanding your chest. Take a long, deep breath, and bring your hands together in the prayer position right in front of your heart when you inhale.

Benefits: Increase your focus, patience, and concentration when you are in this pose.



Raised Arms Pose (Hastotanasana)

The name originates from the Sanskrit word "upward tree." To do this pose, stand straight, raise your arms, stretch back and lengthen your spine as you gaze upwards. Make sure that you can balance yourself and remain on the ground.
