Surya Namaskar asana is an ancient method of yogic practice of India to worship the Sun. In Sanskrit ‘Surya’ means the Sun and the word ‘Namaskara’ means salutation. So, this practice is known as ‘Surya Namaskar’ or ‘Sun Salutation’. Surya Namaskar is a series of 12 asanas (postures) with strict regulation of breath. It combines Yogasana and Pranayama. The practice is preferably done in the morning facing the rising Sun to express our gratitude to the Sun. You can do it at sunset too.
