Abhivadaye during Sandhyavandanam

At the conclusion of SV, we perform Abhivadaye which to my understanding is an expression of our lineage in terms of the Rishis, Gothram, Suthram, Branch of Vedam that we are following.

Normally, it is a way of introducing oneself to elders aka one’s visiting card or business card (as our western brethren are inclined to call).

I have a question to the learned people.

Why do we perform Abhivadaye during SV and that too twice?

As a corollary to this, to whom are we offering our obeisances while performing Abhivadaye?
