Your Body – Hasta Uttanasana (Raised Arms pose)

We are suggesting some selected Yog Asanas to rejuvenate your body. Next in the series is:
Benefits: It improves digestion.

It stretches and tones the muscles of the abdomen.

It expands the chest and the rib cage resulting in full intake of oxygen. The lung capacity is fully utilised.

Procedure: Start inhaling slowly as you chant the mantra – Om Ravaye Namaha. As you breathe in, lift your arms up and back. Make sure your biceps are close to your ears. Now, bend your body backward as much as you can.

We used to do this posture in school with both hands parallel to each other.

However, the correct way of doing this is by stretching your body back with palms still stuck together.
