Here are the health benefits of the pyramid pose
Starting from your torso, shoulders, and chest to your hips, hamstrings and calves—this asana stretches your body intensely. So, if you are looking for a full-body stretch then now you know what can work the best!
With the regular practice of this asana, your body gets stretched properly which helps in correcting the posture. You’ll soon notice that your shoulders are not dropping anymore.
Parsvottanasana requires balancing your body while taking all the weight at the core. So apart from enhancing the balance of your body, it also brings in more awareness.
It is an intense pose that requires you to properly balance your body. And along with the deep stretch, it also helps strengthen the lower body.
When you put pressure on your core, the chest and the tummy gets pushed inwards towards the thighs. Holding the pose helps stimulate the internal organs which improve digestion.
