Full Description


Back Bends

back bends will help bring your spine back to its natural flexion and relieve chronic back or neck pain.

The asanas help open the chest and build strength all along your spine while simultaneously increasing flexibility and stimulate the nervous system. The combination of strength and flexibility will wipe away pain and give you back your body’s natural mobility and vibrance.

Our daily activities involve bending forward a lot, sitting, picking up things and children. All of which contribute towards defects and injuries as the spine is worked in one direction only. The spine is meant to be flexible and have a reasonable range of motion forward and backward. Therefore regularly practising back-bends you will restore your spine to its natural flexibility, reducing your chances of defects, injury and back pain. And Increase the flexibility and strength in your spine.

Forward Bends

Forward bends help to give an internal massage and improve the circulation to the various organs like the abdomen, pancreas, liver, intestines and kidneys. They also help to lengthen and strengthen the hamstrings, muscles of the inner leg, make the muscles of the back suppler and boost the strength of the legs and the knees as you surrendering to an intense and rejuvenating stretch.

Side Bends

Side-stretching poses lengthen the muscles between the ribs and pelvis, including parts of the low back, and open the sides of the rib cage, improving rib cage mobility and the expansiveness of the lungs, which makes breathing easier in all situations.
