Working from home has become the norm because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While working remotely has several advantages, it also has some drawbacks.
Our bodies have become less energetic because we no longer commute to work, which can lead to aches, pains, and joint tightness in certain people. Movement aids in the circulation of blood, the reduction of inflammation, and the lubrication of joints. As a result, a lack of physical activity combined with a high level of mental stress might hurt our health.
Here are five Yoga Asanas to keep you healthy
Ustrasana, or camel pose, is a traditional Yoga posture that strengthens the abs, thighs, and chest. With its heart-opening stretch, this posture reduces lower back pain. To do this Yoga, drop down on your knees with your palms supporting your lower back and begin bending backward by holding your heels. Stay in this stance for 6-8 seconds before gently releasing the pose. This will assist in the relief of neck pain as well as the straightening of your spine.
Apanasana is a traditional Yoga pose that aids in the release of stress from the body. It also relieves indigestion, bloating, flatulence, acidity, and constipation by removing extra digestive air. Simply lie down on your back, pull your knees to your chest, and wrap your hands around both shins to execute Apanasana. Release and stretch both legs while exhaling. Bring your legs closer to your stomach as you inhale.
Dhanurasana, or Bow-position, is the third yoga pose that helps with weight loss and balance. The asana aids in the reduction of belly fat and improves the health of the digestive and reproductive systems. While doing so, lie down on your stomach, face down, and slowly inhale. Begin to bend your legs backward while holding your ankles with your hands. Hold the stance for 20-30 seconds before slowly lowering your legs and chest to the ground.
Balasana, commonly known as child position, is one of the most relaxing Yoga Asanas. The asana relieves lower back strain and helps you feel peaceful and relaxed. Bend your knees and sit on your heels with your shins resting on the yoga mat to achieve this. You may remain in this position for as long as you like before gently rising.
Bhujangasana, also known as Cobra Stretch, provides many advantages. It is a part of both Surya Namaskar and Padma Sadhana. Bhujangasana will not only tone your abs but will also strengthen your back and shoulders while improving upper and middle back flexibility.
The position improves blood circulation while also reducing weariness and tension. You must lie down on your stomach and place your palms behind your chest in this Yoga Aasan. Take a deep inhale and lift your chin and chest, pressing your palms against the mat. Maintain a small bend in your elbows and lift your body upward.
