Instructions.

  • Lie on the back with knees bent and the heels touching the buttocks.

  • The feet should be about one foot apart.

  • Let the head rotate slightly and allow the crown to support the weight of the upper body.

  • The legs will form right angles at the knees.

  • Straighten the arms and legs, lift the head off the ground and raise the body so that it is fully arched.

  • You can straighten the knees almost completely by moving the trunk upward.

  • Slowly lower yourself back to the ground and then the relaxation posture - shavasana.

  • Chakrasana should not be practised by sufferers of high blood pressure, coronary ailments, stomach ulcers, toxic intestines, partial deafness, or dilated eye capillaries, or by anyone who has recently fractured bones or undergone abdominal operation.

  • It is not to be attempted until the practitioner is able to do the preliminary backward bending poses.

 


Benefits.
