Hi 🙂 How is yoga going on? Hope you are enjoying yoga.
Today I am gonna discuss an asana which is very powerful in enhancing the spinal cord strength.
Practice this yoga pose after these:
- yoga for lower back— Never strain yourself while practicing nay yoga pose. Do only how much you can and how much time you can hold the pose. Never ever strain your body.
- Yoga for lower back, 2nd pose
- Third asana in sequence
- For spinal cord strength
- 2nd asana in sequence
One asana or yoga pose never give better results. You need to practice sequence of yoga asanas everyday to see better results.
Here is one more yoga pose called setu bandhasana which helps in spinal cord strength. This pose is also known as Bridge pose.
Benefits of setu bandhasana:
- It strengthens back and gives good stretch to neck, chest and hips too.
- It improves blood circulation and digestion.
- It gives relief from any menstrual disorders, menstrual pains and also from high blood pressure, asthma.
- It reduces thyroid problems.
- If you are feeling stress, anxiety and depression then you should definelty do this as this asana gives relief from all those as it calms your brain.
- It also helps in weight loss.
- Get your yoga mat and lie down flat on your back where your arms at your sides and palms facing down
- Now, bend your knees and keep your feet flat.
- Place your hips distance apart and parallel to each other.
- Bring your feet close to buttocks as much as you can, don’t overdo.
- Keep your arms at your sides and palms facing down.
- Now, inhaling, slowly lift your back as much as you can like in the above image.
- Support or balance your weight with arms, shoulders and feet.
- Feel the lifted up back and see that your thighs are parallel to each other.
- Lift your hips as high as possible. Don’t overdo you can slowly improve through practice.
- Take 10 normal breathings in this position.
- Exhaling, slowly come down and lie in a relaxed manner.
- Repeat this asana for 5 or 10 times.
Note: If you had recent neck injury and back injury, avoid this pose. If you had lumbar spinal fracture and if it happened 2 years ago, then you can do this pose as I could do comfortably. I started doing this after 1 and half years of my spine fracture. If you are suffering from chronic lower back pain, yes you should definelty do this every day.
