Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar, in Sanskrit) is a set of 12 postures put together in a flowing sequence to help calm your mind, improve concentration, reduces restlessness and anxiety.
When performed at pace it is an excellent cardio vascular workout, helping with weight loss, endurance levels and improving the strength and vitality to your body, the flexibility of the spine and when performed at a slower pace it is an excellent way to help unwind & relax.
I practice Sun Salutations every day, it encourages a sense of peace & calm in my mind and helps develop a strong & flexible body. Here is a diagrammatic image of how to practice your sun salutations.
