Soorya Namaskar

The Sun Salutation or Soorya Namaskar limbers up the whole body in preparation for the asanas .It is a graceful sequence of 12 positions performed as one continuous exercise .Each position counteracts the one before stretching the body in a different way and alternately expanding and contracting the chest to regulate the breathing .Practised daily it will bring great flexibility to your spine and joints and trim your waist .

From the book , Sivananda Companion to Yoga
