Surya Namaskar needs no introduction. Also known as sun salutations, it is a sequence of postures that are said to have been practiced for over 2,500 years since all ancient cultures respected and revered the sun.
We at Sattviko have modified this set of sequences to suit every individual needs and derive more benefit from Surya Namaskar by simply adding some yoga asanas to it. This new wellness plan is called Surya Yoga. Read along to know more about this new concept, the benefits, and why all of us must become Surya Yogis.
What is Surya Yoga?
Surya Yoga is made up of two words: Surya and Yoga. Surya, as we all know, means the sun, and Yoga means union. Therefore, by practicing Surya Yoga, you can combine all your internal energies that naturally reside in your body with the potential of the sun. When your energies are synchronized with the sun, you become a Surya Yogi, and you will radiate a sunshine-like aura from within.
Surya Namaskar remains an integral part of Surya Yoga and is further combined with various asanas. All of which help you achieve the six yogic pillars of wellness, including:
- Developing endurance
- Building strength
- Maintaining balance
- Becoming more flexible
- Achieving a composed mind
- Rejuvenating spirituality
The inspiration behind Surya Yoga
The Sun, as we all know, has been the ultimate source of energy for many millions of years. The popular civilizations known to mankind, the Indus Valley Civilisation, the Inca Civilisation, the Mayan Civilisation — all worshipped the sun. And that’s exactly why we believe that, by practicing Surya Yoga, one can attain the enlightened state of Sadhna and Samadhi when you are truly in union with the sun, which is the ultimate source of energy.
