Since this Yoga posture is practiced with the help of shoulders, that is why this posture is called Kandharasana or The Posture of the Shoulders. In this post, YogaAsanasOnline.com provide the complete method of this asana and their benefits.
How to do Kandharasana
Lie Supine. Place your feet as close to your hips as possible.
- Hold your ankles with your hands.
- Do not move your feet or shoulders. Rather, breathe in deeply and raise your body (while holding your breath). Keep your feet, shoulders, neck and hands held in a steady position. After remaining in this posture, revert back to the original position i.e. release your ankles, spread your body on the mat and relax.
Ordinarily, this Yoga posture can be practiced five to ten times.
Benefits of Kandharasana
This posture is very beneficial in neck pain, lower back pain, spondilysis, slipped disc, sciatica and placing back the bones that have moved from their original position.
In this posture, one must meditate on the stomach.
