    I remember the time when I was too plump and went to the Gym for loss of weight. We used to do group exercises, which included the sun salutation poses. It was amazing experience. These poses really help. I had lost a good deal of weight and inches with them. Now that i have regained some weight back, i think i’ll need these sun salutation poses again for my rescue. Thanks for reminding.
