Surya Namaskar


This is an excellent set of exercises to start your day with, which energises you for the whole day.

However, it's good to learn from an authorised Yoga instructor, before starting.
 
 
These are the Mantras to be chanted along which are believed to direct prana,(life force or vital energy)to the body:
Asana 1 - Pranamasana, Prayer Pose:
"Om Mitraya Namaha”
“Salutations to the friend of all.”
Asana 2 – Hasta Utthanasana, Raised Arms Pose
“Om Ravaye Namaha”
“Salutations to the shining one.”
Asana 3 – Padahastasana, Hand to Foot Pose
"Om Suryaya Namaha”
“Salutations to he who induces activity.”
Asana 4 – Ashwa Sanchalasana, Equestrian Pose
“Om Bhanave Namaha”
“Salutations to he who illumines.”

“Salutations to he who moves quickly in the sky.”
