Study design: experimental study Background: There have been studies in the past demonstrating significant cardio-respiratory, musculoskeletal and metabolic health benefits of Suryanamaskar. The need of the hour has favored us answer this research question regarding the efficiency of Suryanamaskar in improving the core strength and thus the postural control assessed by static and dynamic balance in overweight and obese individuals. Method: A total of 62 subjects participated in the study (30-Control & 32-Experiment group). Outcome measures studied were deep abdominal muscle thickness using ultrasonographic imaging; static balance measured by unilateral stance using Neurocom Balance MasterTM and dynamic balance using Star Excursion Balance Test. Results: paired & unpaired t-test was used to analyze their performance. Conclusion: 6-weeks of Suryanamaskar enhanced the thickness of the deep abdominal muscles as seen by ultrasound imaging; static balance as measured by Unilateral Stance Test & Limits of Stability and dynamic balance as measured by the Star Excursion Balance Test.
