Being immensely radiant and a life giving force on earth, the Sun ☀️ is the representation of the invisible supreme power that nurtures and sustains the universe. Suryanamaskara is sun ☀️ salutation 🙏 , it combines yogasanas and pranayama. It is best done during sun rise or sun set time, facing the sun. It is to be done after Śithilīkarana Vyayama and before Yogāsanas. Prayer to be recited before Suryanamaskara:
Lets see the definition of Āsana🧘🏻♀️:
Sage Patanjali in his Patanjali Yoga Sutra’s defines āsana as
- Sthiram + Sukham + Āsanam (PYS 2.46)
Āsana is a physical posture that is steady & comfortable.
Before doing my YIC (YOGA Instructor Course) course in S-VYASA (Swami Vivekananda YOGA Anusandhāna Samsthāna), I was in the perception that I knew yoga as I had learned and was practicing few āsanās & prāṇāyāma <got to learn from a doctorate in Yoga Dr.Rajesh Sir in Mangalore> from a decade. I presumed I knew it and joined the course to learn few more of them and to get certified. But only later that I realized that the āsanās & prāṇāyāma are just a part of yoga, it’s a much deeper philosophical subject and there is loots to explore!
I believe most of you are also in that perception and hence I have made an attempt to write this blog..
So what is YOGA???

- In another half add 6tsp of raw cacao powder & 2tsps of raw cacao nibs, gently pour the batter on top of the vanilla batter.
- Spear it gently pat the tray and bake in the pre-heated oven for 40mins or until done <prick toothpick in the centre, it should come out clean>.
French toast is sure to be liked by most of the kids and adults too. If I’ve not planned anything for breakfast then this is my saviour 😉. It takes just 15mins to prepare and since we use wholesome ingredients it’s a very healthy breakfast option.
I do prepare this dessert often and is really simple once you have the khoya ready! Specially coz my LO doesn’t consume milk / curd, I try all alternate ways like preparing roti dough using curd instead of water, making paneer dishes, preparing desserts using milk products and he loves eating them 😉…
