Restore equilibrium with back bending postures
Yoga is unique in a way. Each pose has a counter pose designed to restore equilibrium. Back bending postures are important part of yogic routine. Yoga Practitioners must include back bending posture for following reasons.
- Most of our daily activities like sitting at office desk, working on your laptop / touch pad involve arching the back and neck forward.
- The artificially cooled office environment induce stiffness in muscles.
- Sitting in hunchback posture invites depression and you feel lousy.
Back bending postures like Ushtrasana (Camel Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), Dhanurasana (Bow Pose) restores equilibrium by reversing the posture that you carry for the whole day. Yoga practitioners must include back bending postures religiously into their routine. Other benefits include opening of respiratory organs, centering of navel and elated state of mind.
