When it comes to yoga, we are immediately drawn to all those poses that are complex and intricate. That’s because we believe that the more complex a pose is, the more benefits it will have in store for you. But let us make a big reveal – this theory is absolutely bogus. And makarasana aka crocodile pose proves it right!
Crocodile pose — makarasana is a restorative or healing posture, and is an effective asana, while transitioning in between poses that work on back strengthening. Makarasana relaxes the nervous system, and is practiced at the end of a yoga session. This posture cools down the body, giving you necessary rest.
Best practiced early in the morning on an empty stomach, makarasana helps bowel movements. If not in the morning, you can do it in the evenings after a three to four-hour gap after your last meal.
