Yoga to beat Stress and relieve back pain

Side Leg Raising 
Side leg raising

Sthiti 


  • Lie down on the left side , with head resting on the folded left arm.
  • Support the back of the neck with left hand
  • Place the right hand on the right thigh or in front of your chest
  • Keep the whole body as straight as possible.
  • While inhaling slowly raise the right leg without bending the knee. Raise the leg as high as possible. Stretch out the toes.
  • While exhaling , slowly lower the right leg
  • This completes one round. Repeat this 5 times.
  • Repeat the same 5 times on right side also.
Note
  • While raising the leg you can maintain balance by pressing the palm on the ground.
  • Feel the strong stimulation of the lateral stretch at the lumbar region.
  • In one round of practice , one provides a good stretch to the lumbar region
  • To balance the body is a little difficult in this practice , try to get the balance by adjusting the position of the arm below the head.
  • For better effect , synchronize body movements with inhalation and exhalation.
