The Deeva Edition for all you Incredible Divas
Varsha Bidasaria | Pinkathon Ambassador Indore
Pinkathon-at-home is another great and innovative initiative by Pinkathon and Milind Soman. I have been associated with Pinkathon for two and a half years now and Pinkathon has always opened new opportunities for me. I was always a physical fitness person but before Pinkathon I did not know anything about the minute nuances of any form of physical fitness. Pinkathon has given me a wide dimension about all the aspects of physical and mental health that are inter-related.
Pinkathon at home has taken an initiative to take every aspect of fitness to every household through social media since we are all under lockdown because of the current pandemic. We might not be able to exercise physically outside our homes but with ideas from Pinkathon at home we can workout mentally and physically in the comforts of our own homes.
In this edition of Pinkathon-at-home I have tried to keep all the focus on the benefits of “SUNLIGHT ON PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH”. I have called this edition “THE DEEVA EDITION” (Deeva means the first rays of the sun) or the “SUNLIT EDITION”. Let me start with a beautiful poem by Lenore Hetrick

Surya Namaskar Benefits
Salute to the Sun or Sun Salutation, is a practice in yoga, an exercise incorporating a sequence of some twelve gracefully linked asanas. The asana sequence originated in the Hatha Yoga tradition in the 9th century in India. The basic sequence involves moving from a standing position into Downward and Upward Dog poses and then back to the standing position, but many variations are possible. The set of 12 asanas is dedicated to the vedic-hindu solar deity Surya. In some Indian traditions, the positions are each associated with a different mantra.
The name Surya Namaskar is from the Sanskrit word सूर्य Sūrya, "Sun" and नमस्कार Namaskār, "Greeting" or "Salute".
