Surya Namaskar comes with multiple health benefits. It helps in burning mega calories and boosting weight loss. It also helps in strengthening the muscles and the joints of the body. It helps in regulating the menstrual cycles and combating Insomnia. Adho Mukha Svanasana, also known as the Downward-Facing Dog, helps in strengthening the upper body and relieving the body of stress. Cobra Pose, on the other hand, helps in boosting digestion and blood circulation.
