Surya Namaskar

Surya Namaskara, also referred to as Sun Salutation, has been practiced for centuries. The pose consists of 12 different postures which should be performed in a chronological manner.

Sukhasana, the easy pose, is a basic leg fold position. Many of the other yoga poses originate from the seated posture. In this pos, when you look down, you see a triangle formed by the two thighs and the crossed shins. The yoga position helps control your breath and tones your lower back and hips. This helps the cartilage in those areas to decompress. (image source:Getty)
