Ten Minutes of Sun Salutation for Busy Corporates

Believe it or not, sparing 10 minutes in your life for Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation can have dramatic changes in various aspects of your life.

Having a successful corporate life is a dream of many. While those inhuman work hours can get you success but it costs you your precious health. When sparing an hour or two everyday for workout seems like a distant dream, one should devote their 10 minutes to practice Surya Namaskar every morning on empty stomach. These 10 minutes can change your lives in a way you won’t realize until you start practicing yourself.

Why Sun Salutation is Beneficial?

Sun Salutation is a full-body workout. Guess how many calories do you burn after a mix of 30-minute exercises? Weightlifting burns around 199 calories, tennis around 232 calories, football around 298 calories, rock climbing around 364 calories, and running around 414 calories.

Now, guess how much calories does Surya Namaskar burn? 417. 

So, technically, 10 minutes of Surya Namaskar translates into burning 139 calories, which is more than what you’d burn even after swimming for 10 minutes. Surya Namaskar, also known as ‘The Ultimate Asana’, strengthens your back as well as your muscles and brings down blood sugar levels. It also improves metabolism and blood circulation (hence, a glowing skin) and ensures regular menstrual cycle for women.
