All positions are complementary to each other to promote the alternate contraction and expansion of chest cavity and spinal cord to gain flexibility in spinal cord, activating the glands and internal organs.
The basic foundation of this Asana which gives it, its energy, its name “Sun” (the ultimate source of light, life and knowledge) lies in the fact that one should not change the position of hands and feet during one round. The reason to it is, our hands and feet act like 2 electrodes of the battery and when given position, the movements (triangle, Z, plank, cobra) charge the body from head to toe. Even the slightest change in the position of hands and feet breaks the flow of nerve current in the body thereby nullifying the energizing effect of the Asana.
