3 Reasons Why Vasisthasana Will Make You Healthier
Do you sit behind a desk all day? Not good. In fact, it can be deadly. Luckily, we have an antidote.
September is National Yoga Month, and a few Yoga instructors from the 92Y May Center will share asanas (poses) with you that they feel passionate about as ambassadors to a healthy lifestyle.
Instructor Angelina Salama kicks off our series with the Vasisthasana, a pose named after a respected Indian sage, and gives you three reasons for why this pose is good for you:
- It is a great antidote to the troubles that plague our bodies as a result of our sitting at the computer for long periods of time.
- It strengthens the wrists, as well as the lumbar and coccyx regions of the spine—two areas made extremely vulnerable by modern day life.
- It demands a strong core to sustain the distal positioning of your limbs.
The result: a healthier and stronger body than before. Give it a try and tell us what you think!
