Yoga Baratha

Purvo - East (refers to the front of the body from the forehead to the toes). Uttana - Intense stretch.

 

Technique: Sit on the floor with the legs stretched in front (Dandasana). Take the palms a forearm back distance away from the hips (can bend elbows back to measure). Place the fingers facing the heels (or opposite direction) and spread them well. Keep the legs together, with the buttocks tightened slightly. Open the chest, arch and open the upper back and pull in the abdomen. Straighten out your legs and point your toes outwards. Pressing the heels down activate the feet. Once comfortable, hang the head back freely but be cautious of your neck. Hold the asana for as long as you are comfortable (one minute). To come out from the asana, bring the head back up first. Then step by step lower yourself down back to Daṇḍasana.

 

Benefits:

 

  1. Strengthens the triceps, wrists, arms, back, and legs.

  4. Activates the nervous system.
  5. Improves lung capacity.
  6. Helpful for depression or fatigue.

Limitations:
