Chakrasana (Wheel posture)

Chakrasana

TECHNIQUE

Lie down on your back. Bend the legs at the knees and place the soles on the ground near the buttocks. Place the palms by the side of your head, fingers pointing towards the body. Slowly raise the body up by resting on the hands and feet, thus making a curve of your spine. Retain the posture for five seconds, and gradually increase the duration to one or two minutes. Concentrate on spine with normal breathing.

BENEFITS

All the benefits of Salabha, Bhujanga and Dhanurasanas are derived from this Asana. All parts of the body are given proper exercise during this posture.
