Malaika Arora's fitness goals: 7 Yoga asana to correct your back posture and de-stress
4. Slightly lean and lift your feet off the yoga mat.
5. Gently extend the legs in the front and keep the shins parallel to the floor.
6. Stretch the arms outward alongside the legs.
7. To exit the pose, bend the knees and rest the feet on the floor.
Why should you try and include this asana in your everyday routine:-
-There are myriad of benefits that the posture provides which includes building core strength and stability; aiding in digestion, improving balance, helps to strengthen lower back and sharpen focus. It is considered that the pose helps ward off unwanted thoughts and therefore helps one to de-stress and revive one's state of mind naturally.
-Besides, the pose improves the health of all the abdominal organs, especially the liver and kidneys. A proper functioning of these organs detoxifies the body from toxins and regulates its fluids.
-It is also known to enhance blood circulation and also lead to effective weight loss from the stomach area and waist.
What you should be mindful of:-
-If you have high blood pressure, always be mindful of keeping the arms raised in line or above the heart for extended periods of time.
-If you have chronic lower back pain, make sure to adjust your legs to relieve pain or pressure until your body is ready to move farther and only perform under guidance.
-If you suffer from severe stomach issues, it is best to avoid this asana or any core-engaging activity.
