As per one of the studies, if you practice Suryabhyas 4 times a day 27 rounds each, it is said you may end up losing upto 2 kgs (in case you are overweight) while keeping the other factors constant. Suryaabhyas is a breathing practice similar to Suryabhedan in Hatha Yoga Pradipika. However, in case of Suryaabhyas, inhalation & exhalation are both done from the same nasal passage i.e. Right Nostril.
As the name indicates, this practice works on activating Pingala Nadi or Surya Nadi and brings all the characteristics of Sun in you. Some of its major benefits are burning the toxins in the body, thereby detoxifying the body to make it pure so that the practices then done can have a nourishing effect.
Person with Kapha pravriti or Asthma, Bronchitis benefit from regular practice of this practice. Also, this can be one of the best pratices especially during winter to maintain the temperature in your body.
Start this winter with Suryabhayas to keep your body toxin free, young & strong.
