Yoga is a preferred choice of exercise nowadays considering the lockdown. And even celebs are sharing their pictures and videos of themselves doing several yoga poses. Recently, Kalank actor Varun Dhawan too shared his video of doing Chandra Namaskar aka Moon Salutation Pose. The actor who has been training with Yoga trainer Mihir Jog has surely aced the same.  

Speaking of Chandra Namaskar, this pose is about meditation and being calm while Surya Namasjar is about heat and light. Mostly the pose is done during the evening time and it helps the body to relax and to gain a stronger connection to breath. The moon salutation is also practiced to calm the mind and draw awareness inward. It can be very effective when energy or temperatures are high and calming is required. 

This particular salutation pose is also beneficial for pregnant women and women in menstruation. It is not recommended, however, if you suffer from sciatica and back problems. If you are doing at night, ensure that the stomach is empty. This yoga asana helps to strengthen all the muscle groups, aids flexibility, increases the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems. This is also beneficial for those who are stressed up.

Chandra Namaskar is not that well known as Surya Namaskar because apparently it was invented during the late 20th century. There are several variations, however, the sequence usually involves asanas such as Pranamasana, Hastauttan asana, Chandrasana, Utthita tadasana, Trikonasana, Parsvottanasana, Left side lunge, Forward-facing lunge, Malasana, Forward-facing lunge, Right side lunge, Tiryaka tadasana and Tadasana among others.

Clever way of diverting attention from real issues facing Bollywood for ages. Varun , stop living in your own bubble of Nepotism and get real with your privilege. You are not a Yogi. You are an entertainer making your living out of gullible Indian people.
