Shilpa Shetty is one of those celebrities who swear by yoga for their health. Yoga not only made Shilpa more flexible and strong, but also helped her lose her post-pregnancy weight. The actress reveals her post-baby body in an exclusive set of videos called Shilpa yoga. In this video, Shilpa shows steps and variations of Bhujangasana or cobra pose.
Benefits of Bhujangasana
The cobra pose stretches the chest, lungs, abdomen and shoulders.
- This yoga asana strengthens the spine, tightens the buttocks and also stimulates the abdominal organs.
- The pose is very beneficial in combating stress and fatigue.
- This asana can also help relieve constipation as it activates the secretion of digestive juices in the stomach, thereby aiding in smooth passage of tools.
- You can try this pose if you want to spice up your sex life as it helps to last longer in bed. Also try kundalini yoga to enhance your sexual energy.
Avoid doing this pose if you have a back injury, headache or carpel tunnel syndrome or are pregnant.
