BAKASANA - The Crane Posture
1. Join the legs together. Place the palm on the ground and bend the trunk. The shoulder should touch the knees (refer Fig. 50.0).
2. Raise the legs above slowly, lift the head and keep the hands straight (refer Fig. 50.0).
3. Stay in this position for a few seconds and then slowly release the legs in order to come back to the original position.
This exercise gives enough
strength to the shoulders and also is a good exercise for the lower part of the
belly. It cures abdominal disorders and eliminates the accumulated fat in
the region of the abdomen.
