What Is The Best Time To Do Surya Namaskar?

Yoga is a deeply spiritual discipline, and a lot of the activities of yoga are performed in the presence of nature. Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) is a great way to keep your body and your mind healthy. Although there are no specific Surya Namaskar guidelines, but the ideal time to perform Surya Namaskar is in the presence of the sun in the morning or in the evening.

Since the presence of the sun is extremely important for the benefits of this yoga posture to be realized, you should not perform this when the sun is no longer up. The best time to do the Surya Namaskar is early in the morning during sunrise, and then late in the evening, during sunset. These are the times, according to ancient scriptures, that the sun’s powers are at their best.

For practical reasons, most people do this first thing in the morning, after waking up. It is ideal to perform the Surya Namaskar routine on an empty stomach so that the benefits of the posture are far reaching. It is also important to maintain a steady but slow speed of performing the posture so that you can maintain a healthy breathing technique and give your body a good stretch.

What Is The Right Way To Do Surya Namaskar

The benefits of the Surya Namaskaar (Sun Salutation) sequence in Yoga are many. However you should refrain from practicing it on your own, until you attain some level of mastery. If any of the Surya Namaskar steps are practiced incorrectly, you could suffer from an injury or other health problems.

Given below are instructions on how to perform the Surya Namaskar step by step:

1. Stand in the The Mountain Pose (Tadasana) at the beginning. This looks like the prayer position, as your hands are joined at the heart
2. Inhale and raise your arms over your head.
3. Exhale before you swan-dive; your body will hinge at the hips and your palms will be flat on the sides of the feet.
4. Inhale and move your right foot behind, so that your body comes up in a Low Lunge
5. Exhale and bring your left foot in line with the right, so that your body forms an inverted V
6. Inhale and move your body into the Plank Pose
7. Exhale then drop your body, so that your knees, chin and chest are on the floor.
8. Inhale and move into The Upward Facing Dog Pose (Urdha Mukha Savasana)
9. Exhale and move into the Downward Facing Dog Pose again
10. Inhale and move your right foot forward in a Low Lunge
11. Exhale and bring the left foot forward too, bending your body.
12. Inhale and stretch your arms over your head to perform The Upward Hand Pose once more and end the sequence with The Mountain Pose

It is best for you to join classes for beginner yoga positions, so that you can learn the Surya Namaskar sequence from a qualified yoga teacher.

You can do Suryanamaskar every alternate day. You have to lie down in Savaasana after you complete rounds of Suryanamaskar.
