Also known as the Camel Pose, Ushtra asana helps improve digestion by stimulating the abdominal organs. It improves flexibility in chest, abdomen and neck and boosts blood flow to the pelvic region.
Sit on your knees and bend backwards. Hold the right ankle/heel with the right hand, and the left ankle/heel with left hand. Bending your neck and head backwards as much as you can, push the waist out to form a ‘D’ with your body. Hold the pose for 15 seconds, breathing normally. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
