‘Ratha Saptami’ marks the birth of the Sun (Surya) God and hence is also celebrated as ‘Surya Jayanti’.

Detailing out the challenge, Nikheal Dixit, Founder of Yoga Vishwa Studio said, “In the Vedic tradition a lot of importance is given to worshiping the Sun God. People worship the Sun in many different ways, however, I felt that the simplest and the most inclusive form of worshiping the Sun God is the Surya Namaskar. I believe that Surya Namaskar is not only a holistic exercise form, but also cures to many ailments and hence we organized this challenge”
