Fitness is undoubtedly a dream to many, but tell me how many of us successfully work hard towards that dream?
Not all of us get that zeal to sweat out profusely; many would comment that they lack time. However, curbing down the rest of your work for some time from the day wouldn’t harm. So why don’t we make today “The day of change”!
Good things take time. So people, be patient.
Yoga is not about hitting the gym and can be done at home. So before striking to the postures, I want my viewers to know the reasons why they should practice this series of yoga, being talked about in this article, that is, Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation.
Sun Salutation is a series of yoga postures and can be done before a rigorous gym workout or even before hitting on to the difficult levels of yoga.
There are a whole host of benefits of practising Surya Namaskar regularly. This is an unique system of yoga comprising of postures arranged in scientific manner.
When should we practice Sun Salutation?
Sun Salutation is best done at the early morning hours.
What about the venue?
Any form of yoga is meant to be performed in fresh air, early in the morning, ideally.
However, these days not all people are lucky enough.
People practice the same in closed air conditioned rooms as well, probably due to the lack of open space.
However, the former is the best and the scientific one. So start searching for an open area near you. Terrace is a great option.
Benefits of Surya Namaskar:
As stated, this system is believed to work wonders on human body, but I will discuss a few of those here.
- Weight loss: Oops! Did you know this?
All of us have this common dream; A dream of having a flat belly, a perfect figure, those abs and biceps and altogether a healthy body.
Well, in order to attain the perfect shape, all we need to do is get rid of that extra fat primarily, followed by toning and a number of after procedures. It is a difficult task no doubt.
However, the process of Surya Namaskar lets us attain that dream shape without much hassle; but remember to follow every step with sincerity.
Sincerity is the key to success!!
This can be called the best technique because this is a very calm process of burning down those extra unwanted fat and calories. A few repetitions mean quite a number of postures being done at a scientific queue. Start doing this thrice a day and increase the number by 2 after every 7 days.
It has been observed that this process reduces a considerable amount of weight if consistently practised, with due course of time. One needs to be highly patient in order to lose weight by yoga, because it takes time, not incredibly much though.
- Cures breathing problems: Yoga and any kind of breathing exercises in the early hours of the morning are proven to cure any kind of breathing problem.
Wondering how it works?
The germs and toxins in the body oxidize the toxins and in turn soothe our system in the process of curing it.
Sun salutation works as a catalyst in this curing process. This purifies and strengthens the inner system uniquely.
- Heals muscle pain: Surya Namaskar is a series of stretching and breathing process simultaneously. Owing to the former, this procedure cures any kind of muscle pain in the body parts.
The muscles gain relief from pain and also get strengthened to prevent further injury and rejuvenate them so that fatigue finds it harder to hit them again.
- Other medical problems: A number of cardiac problems, problems due to abnormal levels of thyroid, blood sugar, cholesterol and a lot more are cured by this technique.
So, get yourself the yoga mat today!
