Hindu Pushup

Since I came to America my awareness has increased about how the name Hindu and India have been interchanged. Everything good has been attributed to India while everything negative has been associated with Hindu. Ironically practices such as Ayurvedic medicine, Yoga, Mantra chanting have been referred as "Ancient Indian practices" while caste system, curry, etc have been associated with Hinduism.

Recently I came across couple of videos on youtube in which correct references have been used. It seems like lot of foreigners, particularly the westerners have begun to learn at a very slow pace what is right and what is wrong. This video showcases the Hindu Pushup, a very common exercise which involves three yoga asanas or yogic poses of the Surya Namaskar and very effective in strengthening muscles, weight loss and giving the right shape to the body.

I have embedded the video for your reference.
