Mission - Surya Namaskar - Sun Salutation
Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation is a most complete series of postures. It is a very good exercise which takes only a few minutes to do and serves as a warm up routine before the practice of yoga asanas. It is one of the best home exercises requiring little space, only eight by three feet. Be sure to have enough space to lie down, and enough clearance to stretch the arms above the head while standing. Surya namaskar consists of a sequence of twelve postures performed continuously and combined with synchronized breathing. Each position counteracts the preceding one producing a balance between flexions and extensions. These 12 exercises are 1 round of surya namaskar. A healthy person requires a minimum practice of 12 or 16 rounds of surya namaskar each day. Surya namaskar's sequence of postures is most scientific as it completes the circuit within the body.
