Surya Namaskar is an ancient form of yoga. Surya namaskar is highly beneficial if you want to lose weight. It helps in improving posture and provides strength to the muscles. Surya namaskar assists in stimulating every system of the body. It strengthens the heart, keeps the nervous system in place and makes the digestive system strong. All the glands function properly with the surya namaskar. Surya namaskar regulates your body, removes your stress and helps you in getting sound sleep. Yoga practices can make us more and more sensitive to subtler and subtler sensations in the body. Paying attention to and staying with finer and finer sensations within the body is one of the surest ways to steady the wandering mind.
