Workout of the Day – Starting with Parivritta Parsvakonasana and moving into Pasarita Padottasana.
Parivrtta Parsvakonasana (Revolved Side Angle Pose) helps strengthen the chest, back, quadriceps and calf muscles. This asana also aids indigestion, constipation, acidity, and it also tones the abdomen. Opens up the chest helps bronchitis, asthma and breathing problems,
whereas Prasarita Padottanasana stretches hamstrings, calves, glutes and lower back. It is also good for stress, anxiety and depression, as it increases blood flow to the brain, benefitting the eyes and hair growth. 🙏🏼

How to perform the yoga pose properly?
Any yoga pose or asana, if not performed properly won’t be of much help and could actually add to your problems. So, it is very important that you pay attention to your posture, breathing technique and angle to get the maximum benefits and live well. In case you want to give this pose a try, here is how to do it correctly:

-Bend down a little and bring your right foot forward and the other foot go a little back.

-Take a deep breath and exhale and slowly rotate to your right.

-Now, staying in this pose, bring your left hand towards the floor. Make sure it is a little away from your right foot.

-Inhale and try to reach your right arm upwards, a little higher than the ear.

-Hold the pose and breathe slowly.

If you are a beginner, proceed with caution and remember, it will take a little practice to perfect the pose. Make sure to keep the neck in a neutral position and not put the entire bulk of your weight on your arms and legs. Distribute your body weight thoroughly to achieve maximum benefits.
