ERRORS TO AVOID
1. Bending the body.
2. Not keeping immobile.
3. Stretching the soles.
THE BACK AND ABDOMEN
The back muscles are especially strengthened and worked out, as are the oblique muscles of the abdomen, which is an important aspect for pranayama exercises.
The muscles from the area oriented towards the floor are most worked out, which allows a better rib respiration.
This pose forces you to perform the yogic breath with controlled abdominal muscles.
It is enough to focus on the way you breathe in the final pose of this asana to feel exactly how the breathing with controlled abdominal muscles should be done.
Consequently, this pranayama technique will be a lot easier to be performed afterwards.
The shoulder muscles are harmoniously strengthened.
THE SPINE MUSCLES
The spine muscles oblique to the spine are mainly fortified and highly energized.
The stretch of some important muscular groups corrects various static defects of the spine. The condition of the entire spine depends on the status of its muscles and ligaments.
The spine should always be as straight and as aligned as it is when doing
This pose strengthens and restores the wrists suppleness.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
The main beneficialiary of this asana is the entire sympathetic chain placed along either side of the spine.
The very activated muscles of the spine in this asana causes a flow of blood towards the nervous vital centres.
The improved blood flow to the vertebral muscles increases the circulation of the blood through the sanguine vessels that feed the spine, which has a direct and favourable effect on all the functions of the nervous system.
