Chakrasana or the wheel pose is a backward bending yoga asana. Chakra in sanskrit means Wheel. In chakrasana, the final position looks like a wheel, hence the name. It gives great flexibility to the spine
Lie down on your back with hands on the side.
Bend your knees and bring your heels as close to the buttocks as possible. The heels should be about 1 foot apart.
Now raise your hands and bring it back next to the ears. Place the palms on the floor with the fingers pointing towards the shoulders.
Lift your body up with the support of the palms and the feet.
Rotate the head slightly, so that your gaze is towards the floor.
Stretch your thighs and shoulders. In the final position your body looks like an arch, almost like a wheel.
Maintain this position, according to your capacity.
To release the position, lower your body till it touches the ground. Straighten your legs. Hands can go back to the original position to the sides.
Chakrasana should be followed by forward bending poses to counteract the pressure created by the back bend.
Chakrasana should be avoided by those suffering from cardiac ailments, high blood pressure, vertigo and those who have undergone recent surgeries.
Chakrasana strengthens the back and abdominal muscles.
It tones the organs in the abdomen including the digestive, excretory and reproductive organs.
Yoga practices can make us more and more sensitive to subtler and subtler sensations in the body. Paying attention to and staying with finer and finer sensations within the body is one of the surest ways to steady the wandering mind.
