Complex “Surya Namaskar” – Salutation to the Sun (part 2)

Without synchronization between breathing and movement, exercise loses many of its beneficial properties.

3. Mantras: each of the twelve positions of Surya Namaskar corresponds to a special mantra.

A “good” vegetarian – does not go on crusades to meat-eaters, only by example, showing the world all the benefits and bonuses of clean food. I always referred to the “good” vegetarians. For I believe that before this it is necessary to mature, and the transition to a new diet should be absolutely stressless. In general, my motto has always been and remains “If you can’t eat meat, don’t eat.” And here on the site vyasa.ru I come across the brochure “Food for the mind.” Continue reading
