Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham Bangalore

This is a reclined hero pose. You start in the hero pose or virasana with your knees together and your feet apart. Rest your buttocks on the floor and then recline the trunk backwards until your elbows are on the floor. Rest the crown of your head on the floor and then slowly lower the back of the head down and then finally rest your back on the floor. You can stretch your arms out over your head on the floor and breathe comfortably, staying here as long as you can. Rise up again by placing your elbows by your trunk and coming up again as you exhale.

PRECAUTION: Neck problems, sciatica, slipped disc, sacral
ailments or knee complaints.

BENEFITS: This asana stretches the abdominal organs and the pelvic region.
People whose legs ache will get relief from holding this pose for 10
to 15 minutes and it is recommended to athletes and all who have to
walk or stand about for long hours.
