From correcting the posture to expanding the lungs and lifting the mood, this asana adds a bunch of benefits to your mornings.

At a time when folks are following Bollywood actors' every move online, it's nice to see the stars dish out some fitspiration. Kareena Kapoor Khan did so today when she shared a series of pictures of her performing a backbend, called the chakrasana.

Comes up the health curve
If you're new to it and wondering what it's about, this is a win-win. Jenil Dholakia, yoga expert delves into the pose as she explains: “Chakrasana is one of the most powerful back-bending postures. It's also an advanced technique and it takes a lot of time for the body to warm up for it. For this, the shoulders and hip flexors need to be really open so that you can get a nice open curve in the body.”


She also shares more on the pose and its health benefits:

  • This posture works on creating a deep arch in the back and it expands your entire frontal body. It helps correct your posture, expand your lungs and your heart.
  • Chakrasana is also very invigorating and lifts your mood up. You feel really energised after doing it.
  • The pose improves flexibility and also helps strengthen the spine.
  • It can be tried by everyone. If people can't do this on their own, they can use certain yoga props like a yoga wheel or someone can help them using a yoga belt and support them, to do this posture.
  • People can even try on a wall by doing a half variation of this, which will still give the benefits.
  • When doing the pose, ensure that you are breathing nice and soft because when you do a backbend you are going against the normal nature of activities in daily (where we do things that are forward bend-oriented like picking up something or working on a laptop where you are leaning forward), thus it may not come naturally to most people and feel challenge.
  • That said, it helps to get the structural and skeletal system aligned well and makes for a powerful postures for the morning, indeed!
