You must have seen most celebrities and yoga experts doing 27, 54 and even 108 rounds of Surya Namaskars? But when it comes to you, it becomes difficult to get even 10, especially if you are a newbie.
Don’t worry! Because today we are going to reveal the trick behind taking out so many Surya Namaskars at once.
One Breath, One Pose – Here is a trick to perform 108 rounds of Surya Namaskar
Don’t be shocked because this is the only trick that will make it happen and of course it will run its course. But the results are guaranteed and faster than ever.
Hear from the Expert – “Breathing exercises known as pranayama in yoga can help you improve the capacity of your lungs. Along with building lung power and removing toxins from the body, it also increases your stamina. When your stamina levels increase, you are also filled with more positive energy and this can help you perform more Surya Namaskar cycles. Surya Namaskar, when done without the correct breathing techniques, cannot bring as much benefit as when done with correct breathing. In this way, pranayama helps you perform more cycles of Surya Namaskar and thus get the most benefit from your practice,” says Grandmaster Akshar to HealthShots.
See how you can practice
As there are seven yoga poses, you should start with an inhalation and then curve backwards. Now, with an exhalation, switch to a forward bend. Now keep changing the breathing pattern along with the next poses. And ta-da! Slowly you will see it go up from 10 to 27 to 54 and finally you can advance to 108 rounds without feeling the heat.
What can you do next to make this posture more effective? Well the next step will be to add some speed to it. Remember that the faster you go, the sooner you can lose those pounds. But, but, but – don’t forget that the shape of each pose is also of great importance if you really want to target every inch of your body.
So girls! The secret is out. Now get those rugs as it’s time for Surya Namaskar!
