Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutation
Surya means 'sun,' and namaskara means 'salutation.' In ancient times, the sun was worshipped as a daily ritual because it is a powerful symbol of spiritual consciousness.
Surya namaskara can be easily integrated into our daily lives as it requires only five to fifteen minutes of practice daily to obtain beneficial results remarkably quickly.
Surya namaskara is composed of the three elements form, energy, and rhythm. The twelve postures create the physical matrix around which the form of the practice is woven.
Surya namaskara is a series of twelve physical postures. It stretches, massages, tones and stimulates all the muscles, vital organs and physical parts by alternatively flexing the body backward and forward.
These postures generate prana, the subtle energy, which activates the psychic body. Their performance in a steady, rhythmic sequence reflects the rhythms of the universe, such as the twenty-four hours of the day, the twelve zodiac phases of the year and the biorhythms of our own body. The rhythmic superimposition of this form and energy on our present body-mind complex is the transforming force which generates the nucleus of a fuller and more active life and a greater appreciation of the richness of the world we live in. Try it for yourself and see.
