Do you experience muscle cramps and numbness way too often? Well, that’s because we are increasingly spending time laying on the couch or staying glued to our workstations. All because of the ‘work from home’ culture. You might not take it as seriously now, but this sedentary lifestyle can make your body so stiff that performing even the most basic chores will become painful as hell.
That’s why ladies, it is high time you take charge of your health. To help you do that, we have a holistic solution – and that’s yoga. Let’s introduce you to an asana, the janu sirsasana or head-to-knee-forward bend. Trust us, it is an effective pose that will make sure to drive away stiffness in your body.
Basically, janu sirsasana is an effective stretch to ease tight hamstrings and calves. Head-to-knee Pose is also helpful when it comes to relieving stress and calming your mind. If you suffer from menstrual cramps or menopausal symptoms, this pose will provide you with much-needed relief.
“Head-to-knee pose stretches the hamstrings, hips, and groin muscles. Runners and athletes will benefit from this good stretch for tight hamstrings,” suggests yoga guru, Grand Master Akshar.
