Practising headstands calms the mind, alleviates stress and depression, and strengthens the upper body, spine, and core. It also enhances lung capacity and boosts digestion.
Viparita Karani Asana regulates the blood flow in the body and restores tired feet or legs. It also stretches the back of the neck, front torso, and back of the legs.
Padmasana is a meditative yoga pose that stretches the ankles and knees. It calms the brain and increases awareness and attentiveness. It also keeps the spine straight and develops good posture.
