How to do –

Sit up with the soles of your feet flat on the floor.

Hook your hands behind your hamstrings and lean back slowly until you are balancing up on your sit bones.

Lift your feet off of the ground and, with bent knees, raise your feet up, so they are aligned with your knees.

Press your lower back in and extend your chest up to the sky. Release your hands from behind your hamstrings and reach your arms out in front of you, palms facing together.

Make sure you keep pressing your shoulders down, pressing your lower back in and extending your heart up. Hold the pose for 5 breaths.

Advanced practitioners can extend their legs straight, making a “V” shape.

A Yogic, poet, writer fond of music. Working as banker.I believe Yoga,a way of life, an art that can be perfectly attained on regular practice and devotion.Regular practicing and proper breathing regenerates our cells making us more active,energetic and more vibrant a healthy and live soul.For me living with yoga is a regular process.A journey of regular internal and external growth. I am practising yoga as a disciple since last 15 years.With guruji’s blessing and guidance there is regular growth in inner consciousness and realization of the self.Mere missing yoga practice sometimes seems to be a loss of the divine energy we are blessed within. Yoga is reunion with yourself.Its regular and continous practice of breathing,asanas gives great energy in daily endeavours.This is to unite with your soul.Deep breath purifies our inner self making us more vibrant and energetic.Its fragrance is deeply felt everywhere giving us hope and positive outlook in everything we perform. Strengthening resoluteness or process sustains our values and beliefs. Value-based goals strengthen our motivation and impact.What transforms our behaviors is staring at everything of ourselves, in. Regular practice makes yoga an art.Surely an yogic is an artist.His performance and attitude towards life is different and holistic.He has a hope a live soul a sense of freedom from negative things from fear or anxiety. Yogic is a true karmic.His karma has a meaning a purpose.His action is graceful and just. ALTHOUGH THIS BLOG PRIMARY COVERS TOPICS RELATED TO YOGA AND ITS BENEFITS BUT I SHOULD QUOTE THE FOLLOWING LINES OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA THAT ALWAYS INSPIRED ME – “ Purity,patience,perseverance and above all love are the three essentials to success. Great occasions rouse even the lowest of human beings to some kind of greatness, but he alone is the great whose character is great,always.”
