Asana: Lie on your back with your arms by your side, palms facing downwards. Keep your legs straight and together. Slowly raise your legs while keeping them together, without curling your toes, until they are at a 45 degree angle. Keep your lower back pressed to the ground. Bring your legs back to the floor while keeping them straight and together.
Benefits: This is an excellent asana for strengthening the abdomen area. It also relieves one of lower back pain, strengthens the leg muscles and aids in curing indigestion.
Practice: Begin with holding the posture for ten seconds. Try holding your legs steadily at the 45 degree mark without moving them up and down. Once you have steadied the position for ten seconds, increase the duration to 20 seconds, 30 seconds and so on.
