What are the Benefits of the Surya Namaskar?

Updated: Jun 19, 2018

Let's start off by saying there are numerous benefits and the more I practice Surya Namaskar, the more I find.

Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation, is a part of yoga that incorporates a sequence of gracefully linked asanas.

I came to yoga thinking it would be easy and a good way to lose weight and tone up. Instead, it was humbling and redirected my attention away from my ego and towards a journey of having a healthy and balanced life. For me, the greatest benefits of the practice are always in the mind. Sometimes we need to go through the body to help the mind. Other benefits are balance and coordination, stress management, positive thinking, better sleep, and more mindfulness.

How do you use the practice of Surya Namaskar in your life? How can you improve your practice when using it?
