Gahhh! Sorry for the late post guys! Just got home & haven’t even unpacked yet! Tomorrow’s #happyhealthyyogis pose is a heart opener!❤ #Chakrasana or #WheelPose 💕To get into wheel:

➡Lie on your back. Bend your knees flat on the floor like preparing for bridge pose.
➡ Press the feet firmly on the floor and inhale slowly. Then try to lift the hip portion upward. While doing so you would lift your thighs and buttocks on the up side direction.
➡ Now use the hands. Put the palms firmly on floor keeping fingers facing your head. In order to lift your shoulder, just try to straighten your arms slowly but steadily. After the shoulders, your head also would be above the floor. When the legs and arms are fully stretched upward, the Wheel Pose is complete.
To get off this pose, make sure you do it slowly. Get you head down by bending elbow and then let the shoulders touch the floor. There after let the body rest in flat position or in corpse pose. It would help in decreasing fatigue.
Benefits of Chakrasana:

➡The more obvious physical benefits are those that derive from the stretching action. It stretches the lungs and chest, while strengthening the muscles of the buttocks, legs, calves, wrists, arms, and spine.
➡It also strengthens and tones the muscles of the abdominal region and helps regulate the digestive function.
➡It acts as a natural stimulant for the thyroid and pituitary glands.
➡It helps re-energize you and is invigorating, and stimulating. It helps counteract depression.
➡This pose has therapeutic value and is recommended for back pain, infertility, asthma, and osteoporosis.
