Join Vibes for a 30 days Yoga Challenge :)
Surya Namaskar/Sun Salutation
Surya Namaskar is the perfect morning practice to awaken our body, focus our mind, and connect to a sense of gratitude for the new day. To understand the sequences check out this video.
Each day the number of the day of the month x 2 as we have to do the excercise for both legs.
So we start with 1 round of sun salutation (x2) TODAY, on the 1st of March, on the 2nd of March we should do 2 x 2 = 4 rounds, on the 15th of March 15 x 2 =30 ..etc.
On the 31st of March we will arrive to 31 rounds =62.
But remember, each body has a different capacity and different flexibility.
The idea is not to compete with anyone. Do only as much as you can or your body can take. It is reccomended to do Surya Namaskar early morning at sunrise, on an empty stomach.
Sun salutation strengthens the entire digestive system and cures, and prevents constipation. Vitalizes the nervous system and cures brain-fag, forgetfulness, worries and other forms of mental derangement. Vitalizes the heart.
