RELEVANCE OF SURYA NAMASKARDURING LOCKDOWN
Yogita Shrivas*, O. P. Dwivedi and Jinesh Jain
With the beginning of COVID-19, people were forced to stay home. Their social life was nearly halted. They could not go out and meet others. The physical movements became very restricted. As the governments induced SOPS for social distancing, the gyms, indoor play courts, swimming pools and even parks were closed and entry prohibited. The uncertainty about the disease also resulted in people choosing to stay home to be safe. People were doubtful even about going for a morning walk. Those working from home were stuck to their rooms during the lockdown. All these factors made the life style sedentary. Therefore, exercising at home became the necessity. In such circumstances, Surya Namaskar could be the best choice to stay fit. It does not require big space or special set up or equipments. Hence, Surya Namaskar is an economic and easily available workout option at home.
