“Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” ― B.K.S. Iyengar
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is committed to teach about the greatness of Sanatana Dharma, various festivals, importance of Temples, importance of yoga and meditation and selflessness of national hero and the richness of our scriptures. We have been conducting various methods of exercises and yoga techniques. Now we have decided to have Surya Namaskar postures conducted every Sunday. Also, different poses will be practiced. 
What is Ustra Asana? 
Camel Pose — Ustrasana — is a backbend that stretches the whole front of the body. In this pose, the chest and abdomen look like the back of a camel.  It is performed on the knees and is often used as preparation for deeper backbends. This pose is a popular component of Vinyasa and Power Yoga classes, and it is also one of the 26 poses practiced in Bikram Yoga.
It is expected to relieve neck and back pain caused by slouching in front of a computer or driving. Ustrasana stretches the front of the body, particularly the chest, abdomen, quadriceps, and hip flexors. It improves spinal flexibility, while also strengthening the back muscles and improving posture. This pose creates space in the chest and lungs, increasing breathing capacity and helping to relieve respiratory ailments. Ustrasana also stimulates the kidneys, which improves digestion. This pose energizes the body and helps to reduce anxiety and fatigue.
The camel pose activates Anahata (Heart) chakra, which is the energy center for love, compassion and caring. It is expected to increase the blood flow to the brain.  Ustrasana is beneficial in decreasing anxiety, stress, improving digestion, and increasing the flow of oxygen. 
Why Surya Namaskar Asanas?
According to Sage Sushrutha ( Master of Ayurveda), health is defined as: One it’s in perfect health when the Three doshas (vata, pitta and Kapha), metabolic fire (digestion, assimilation and transformation), all the bodily tissues & components (the entire physical body) all the excretory functions ( urination, sweat, and defecation) are in perfect order with a pleasantly disposed and contented mind, senses and spirit. 
There are twelve Asanas one is taught standing in front of sun in the morning wherever it is possible, It can be done other times facing east. Ten minutes of doing Surya Namaskar would have dramatic effect in various aspects of one’s life. We all know that without sun, there is no life. Sun radiates energy and heat, without which there is no life. They are Pranayama, Hastauttanasana, Padhastaasana, Ashwa Sanchalanasana, Parvtasana, Dandasana, Ashtanga Namaskar, Bhujangasana, Parvatasana, Ashwa Sanchalanasana, Padasastasan, Hastauttanasa.

Why Children?
We all know that child is unable to concentrate on academics. While reading about the parts of a flower and understanding the composition of water, the mind keeps slipping away for a little walk. Surya Namaskars involves a sequence of yoga poses that engage various muscle groups, improve flexibility, and enhance overall physical strength. Regular practice can help kids and teenagers develop a healthy and active lifestyle.
GHHF has introduced to our Bala Samskar Students to encourage children to start learning Surya Namaskar at a very young age to reap all the benefits for the rest of their lives. At this age they can tone up their muscles and body. It also changes their mental makeup when introduced at a very early age. It also helps reduce many ailments.
