Also known as the Plough Pose, Halasana improves flexibility, strengthens the spine as well as abdominal muscles.  It’s also effective in relieving stress in the shoulders and back muscles.

Lie on your back in Shavasana (Corpse Pose) with your legs joined together and arms on the side. Breathing normally, press your palms on ground and raise both the legs upwards straight, then bend them backwards to touch the ground just behind. Hold the pose for 1 minute. Release slowly and return to Shavasana. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
