Surya namaskar can be an energising and strengthening practice – it is especially suited to morning and cold weather. It is not so well suited to a hot climate or as an evening practice.
People with shoulder, wrist and back weakness are advised caution, although some adaptations are possible to work around these weaknesses without aggravating them. Surya namaskar is not recommended for women during menstruation and pregnancy, and for anyone with recent abdominal surgery or other conditions like diarrhoea and dysentery, those with heart ailments, and anyone with any debilitating condition.
