Yoga can be the perfect practice for you during these times of corona virus. With gyms and fitness centers being off-limits, all you need is a basic yoga mat and a sense of commitment to your daily practice. Yoga is the ancient and holistic solution to your overall health and well-being. In yoga there are many namaskar such as Surya namaskar, Chandra namaskar, Agni namaskar, Vayu namaskar, Aakash namaskar etc. These are scientifically designed flows that contain sequences of postures that work on the entire body including your internal organs. This, not only helps you to prevent diseases related to the respiratory system such as the corona virus, but also helps you to recover faster. So, Grand Master Akshar talks about three yoga asanas or yoga namaskar for healthy lungs.

Surya Namaskar

The Surya Namaskar is a combination of 8 different postures that are threaded into a sequence of 12 steps for both sides of the body - Right and Left. The Surya Namaskar is started with the Right side as the sun’s energy is represented symbolically through right. One complete cycle is made of 24 counts covering both right and left sides.

The Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation should be ideally practiced early in the morning before sunrise. This impacts you positively with physical and mental strength, gives you command over your body, calms your mind, balances your energies, and brings peace. This powerful technique ensures a better functioning digestive system, and builds immunity. It can help you to improve your sleep as it combats insomnia, and reduces stress.

Chandra Namaskar

The Chandra Namaskar is a combination of 9 different postures that are threaded into a sequence of 14 steps for each side, Right and Left. The Chandra Namaskar is started with the left side as the moon’s energy is represented symbolically through left. One complete cycle is made of 28 counts covering both right and left sides.
