(HALF SHOULDER POSE)
Before you start with any asana or breathing exercise, it is always advised to start with a warm-up yoga.
Vibaritha Karani ( also known as the Half Shoulder Stand Pose) is one among the other liedown poses.
It gives you relaxation and relieves stress with the regular practice of this asana.
It increases blood circulation to head parts so that brain cell gets energized enormously.
The pose is good for leg, feet and varicose vein disorders.
It tones your shoulders, arm, neck, lower back as well as hamstrings.
How to do?
Lie down on the floor, keep your hands near the thigh. Breath-in lift your legs upright and support your back by your arms by keeping the upper arm firmly on the ground.
Don't lock the chin with your chest. Allow your legs to stand straight (90 deg) angle to the ground.
Feel the body weight on to the hands and continue breath-in & out.
If you are comfortable you can stand in this position for 10 minutes or even more than 10 minutes.
Slowly breath-out and lower the legs and relax on the floor.
People with neck, shoulder and elbow injury/issues, do not attempt to do excessively. This may increase the pain.
