Dhanur Asana / Bow Pose

To gain continuity, visit the ongoing series share: Yoga’s Way with my Dad

Dhanur Asana, the Bow Pose, indeed is an exquisite utility provider. “Dhanus” reflects “bow”. Like a bow ready for action via the aim, the body flexibility with the hands acting as the string of the bow of torso, and ankles clamped when a person lying on the abdomen lifts the frontal body up with proper exhalations at the start and inspiration then as the vinyasa flow, the pancreas are activated.

Step-1 after prelims (either from Surya Namaskar / from MatsyAsana – can be found here Yoga’s Way with my Dad)
Step-2 On your knees and hands
Step-3 Take your legs back one after the other (and slowly, yet steadily)
Step-4 On your abdomen. Hands on the mark and ready to balance.

Yes, the endocrine and exocrine exuberations produce really Howdini effects. True the Dhanur Asana reverberates the body-mind-spirit integration and the sigma effect of synergy can be experienced. No exaggeration please. Our perserverance will pay rich dividends for an agile personality with proper EQ (Emotional Quotient) and IQ (Intelligence Quotient) over a period of time. For hard working, smart workaholic, tech savvy world this Asana is a must to reduce obesity, stress, anxities of diverse types. The prelims on itself is much needed for a mindfulness of reflection, resonance and resilience par excellence per se.

Step-5 Lift the frontal body up with appropriate exhalations
Step-6 DhanurAsana (preliminary posture without hands holding the legs) stretches Thorax, Abdomen, Thigh, Inguinal region, Ankle, Throat, Psosas major muscle, and front of the body.

Added Preliminaries – Part-1 for Dhanur Asana

Published by Ramya Varadharajan

A passionate young woman who has just realized her Iconic Independence, truly by leading a life, on her own – which she has only fantasized in her dreams all through these years, before stepping into a challenging role of this kind (you will get to know what this journey has been!). I have wanted to prove myself, not just in the cyber space, but the treasure-filled stage of life as well. Ask me to whom I wanted to prove? It was just to myself and not to anyone else. I for one slide into the shoes offered to me on a daily basis by the All-Pervasive! Whatever that might be! I also want to be an active player all through the blissful years that is showered and the ones that I am yet to be presented with! I am full of life and values and wish to re-create the meaning of this ‘journey undertaken’ – not just through the mere survival and existence, but by the richness of resilient thoughts to LIVE and THRIVE every moment that flashes by!
