Uttanasana not only heals but also rejuvenates your body. In this asana, your head is below the heart, and this allows for blood circulation in your head instead of your feet, giving your cells a rush of energizing oxygen.
Rest your hands on your hips, exhale, and bend forward from the hip joints rather than the waist. Draw your belly slightly in and focus on lengthening your front torso as you go deeper in Uttanasana.
As a beginner, it might be hard to increase the stretch. To make it easier, gently bend your knees, and imagine the sacrum sinking deep into the back part of the pelvis. Now, decrease the distance between your tailbone and the pubis. As you feel the resistance, push the top part of your thighs back and press your heels down. Straighten your knees. But be sure you don’t lock your knees
Additional benefits: -This bend gives your digestive organs a good massage, thereby improving digestion.
-Relieves tension in the spine, neck, and back.
-Activates the abdominal muscles.
-May lower high blood pressure
-Therapeutic for infertility, osteoporosis, and sinusitis.
