An Introduction: Surya Namaskara is a dynamic group of Asanas and Each Asana is used for Healing or Toning up a part of the body. While moving from one posture to another, that part of the body becomes healthier, vigorous and active besides working on the seven charkas (Energy Centres). When the sequence is practiced at a very slow pace, it helps expansion of awareness, preparing the practitioner for a spiritual awakening within.
Surya Namaskara comprises of six postures repeated twice, one while Moving forward and the other on return. The pace (rhythm) and precision with which the practitioner moves into the posture helps him to derive the Maximum benefit out of the practice. The sequence when undergone in a steady, rhythmic way will generate Prana, the subtle energy which activates the psychic body.
The Ideal time for practicing Surya Namskara would be at sunrise in the open air facing the sun. The most important condition for the practice of Surya Namaskara is that it should be done on an empty stomach.
