Urdhva Dhanurasana

I've been seeing/reading so many "Flex Ko Lang" posts in Facebook lately so I asked my youngest son what's with this line about, Juan said. "it means you want to share or show off something that the person is really proud of or happy about".

Makikiuso ako, for my first ever Flex Ko Lang post, this Urdhva Dhanurasana😀 

Although I've started doing yoga many years back, I cannot do a lot of  poses yet because this past three months have been the longest I stayed doing yoga. I used to enrol, then stopped after a week or two. Hopefully staying for good, and sana, if laziness won't kick in, I hope to be a yoga teacher before I turn 50 in four years time.

Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose) is an uplifting posture. It stimulates the nervous system and opens the heart, and can leave you glowing with energy and vitality for the rest of the day. Chakrasana or Urdhva Dhanurasana is an asana in yoga as exercise. It is a backbend and is the first pose of the finishing sequence in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It gives great flexibility to the spine. In acrobatics and gymnastics this body position is called a bridge. (Source: Wikipedia)

Benefits of Urdhva Dhanurasana:

This asana also gives strength to your legs, abdomen, buttocks, spine, shoulder blades, glutes, hamstrings, lower back, wrists, and arms. It cures infertility, asthma, and osteoporosis. It also relieves stress and reduces depression, and makes you feel energetic and full of life. It also stimulates the abdominal organs and thyroid glands, which improves digestion and helps to regulate metabolism.
