2006-11-14 - Salabhasana - Locust

Salabhasana means a locust.


1. Lie on your abdomen - face downwards. Stretch your arms back along the sides of your body or place them deep under your body, lying on your elbows. Clench the fists.

2. Inhaling, raise the right leg as high as possible. Exhaling, lower the right leg down.

3. Repeat with the left leg.

4. Legs together. Inhaling, raise both legs. HOLD.

5. Exhaling, lower both legs down.

Salabhasana aids digestion, regulates intestinal functions and strengthens the resistance of the abdominal walls. The liver, pancreas and kidneys are massaged.
The bladder and the prostate gland also benefit and remain healthy.
People suffering from slipped discs benefit by regular practise. Back pains and sciatica are relieved in a short time.
