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.
