The Body-Raising Pose (Arohandsana)

Technique:

  1. Start by lying flat on the floor.
  2. Interlock your fingers and place your hands behind your head, just above the. neck.
  3. Take a deep breath, and simultaneously raise your head, shoulders and legs off the floor, keeping the knees straight.
  4. Maintain this posture for a few seconds while holding the breath, then exhale while slowly returning to the original position.

Time:

Repeat this posture once more. Increase the number of times, very gradually, from two to eight.

Benefits:

This is an excellent exercise for strengthening the abdominal muscles, the pelvic region, the back and the shoulders. It helps reduce abdominal fat and relieves constipation.

Caution:

This posture is rather strenuous and should not be done by women suffering from serious female disorders.
