ASANA – POSE

A very powerful pose at the beginning of the asana practice helps the entire digestive system.

HOW TO DO PAWANMUKTASANA?

  • Lie on your back or in a supine position, with your arms beside your body.
  • Inhale.
  • Exhale, bringing your knees toward your chest and pressing your thighs on your abdomen with clasped hands.
  • Inhale again.
  • As you exhale, raise your head off the floor, letting your chin touch your knees.
  • Hold this pose as you take deep, long breaths in and out.
  • Release the pose to return to the starting position, bringing your head down first and then your legs – this is one round.
  • Do 2-3 rounds and then relax.

BENEFITS:

  • Stretches the neck and back.
  • The abdominal muscles are tensed and the internal organs are compressed which increases the blood circulation and stimulates the nerves, increasing the efficiency of the internal organs.
  • The pressure on the abdomen releases any trapped gases in the large intestine.
  • Blood circulation is increased to all the internal organs.
  • Digestive system is improved.
  • Relieves constipation.
  • Strengthens the lower back muscles and loosens the spinal vertebrae.
  • Helps in sterility and impotency.
  • Massages the pelvic muscles and reproductive organs and is therefore beneficial for menstrual disorders.
  • Reduces fats in the abdominal area, thighs, and buttocks.
