Vrikshasana – (Tree Pose)

Vrikshasana was particularly easy, wasn’t it? Now let’s try Dhanurasana!

As the name suggests, the Dhanurasana pose resembles the shape of a bow. It is done by making a U shape with your body and joining your hands and legs.

How to do it:
Dhanurasana is not very difficult to do. Let’s take a look at the following steps-

  • Lie flat on your stomach with legs and arms spread out. Your arms should be beside your waist.
  • Bend your knees and lower your ankle above your buttocks. Grab your ankles while inhaling slowly.
  • Arch your back and raise your thighs, chest, and head slowly.
  • Lift your gaze as you exhale and kick your heel up close to your buttocks.
  • Hold the position and breathe while balancing on your stomach.
  • Relax slowly by bringing your legs lower first and then the rest of the body.

The following are the benefits that Dhanurasana provides us:

  • Dhanurasana provides flexibility to the body.
  • It offers a lot of relief in menstrual contraction and constipation.
  • It helps with a kidney disorder.
  • It helps in stimulating reproductive organs.
