Purna Dhanurasana


The Bow Pose
This is the final and the advanced posture of Dhanurasana. This exactly resembles a Dhanush (the Bow).In this yogasana, all the vertebrae benefit from the stretch. The entire body bears the strain and becomes more elastic. The whole weight falls on the abdominal area near the navel and due to the pressure on the abdominal aorta, blood circulates properly round the abdominal organs. This keeps them healthy and improves the digestion. In this posture the shoulder blades are well stretched so that stiffness in the shoulders is relieved. The most noticeable effect, however, is that throughout the strenuous movements, the mind remains passive and still. this asana helps to keep one trim and young in body, and fresh and alert in mind.
