Thank you Manju Joglekar I do the Surya Namaskaara without saying the mantra. Let me learn it now. I had forgotten it because it is many many years since I learnt it. In between I had forgotten. I have forgotten the names of the asanaas also!

Sandhya, I remember you saying that you do Surya Namaskars regularly, in the post you wrote on your blog! 🙂
My health does not let me do Surya Namaskars now. We used to teach Surya Namaskar to children in the Sanskar-vargas we conducted.

I am unable to do the surya namaskar too, but know and recite the namas of Surya during my puja. The pics are useful to learn it the proper way.

Surya namaskar is the compete exercise, isn’t it? Yes, the chart is useful- it shows the correct positions for each step.

Manju this was very informative and linking with the verses made it even better! Suryanamaskar has such a power to heal and maintain well being.

Yes, Surya namaskar is very beneficial. It is not a time-consuming exercise either.

I have never been able to do a decent Surya Namaskar. I have given up.

Too bad, Radha. Have you tried any yogasanas instead?
March 13, 2013 at 11:50 pm
Oh yes, my parents were into yoga a lot and both were good at sirashasana. I could not do that either. I did some basic asanas, the halasana and the sarvangasana.

Yes indeed, this is an exercise that needs little space and no fancy equipment.

Surya Namaskar is the king of all asanas. All our chakras get energized if we do this asana regularly. Thank you.

Yes, I agree. Surya Namaskar is indeed the king of asanas!
