This is the Eight Limbed salutation or Ashtanga Namaskara asana means eight points of contact with the mat: both feet, knees, palms, chest, and chin (or forehead). Hence the name Ashtanga Namaskara. It is performed to pay respect to the elders, gurus, or gods when visiting temples in India and to pay respect to the Hindu deity Sun. Ashtanga Namaskara, or the Eight-Limbed salutation, appears in the 6th position in the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskara). It is a prone posture, which means that you lie on your stomach and acts as a transition pose. Senior Yoga Teacher Bhushan Bhukte, Heartfulness Yoga Academy, shares a step-by-step guide to Ashtanga Namaskara.
