Benefits of Lion pose


Rishikesh - Uttarakhand - India

RISHIKESH, India - Aug. 27, 2019 - PRLog -- Simhasana is one of the most unique yoga poses. The word Simhasana is derived from the Sanskrit word 'Simha' means lion and 'Asana' that means Pose. It is known as lion pose because the final Pose resembles like a roaring lion, and it is probably the only Pose that requires making a roaring sound. It can be performed by any age group, from elders to children. Although it is not a familiar pose, yet many yogis practice it for spiritual and emotional upliftments. Apart from that, it is one of the best face exercises you can get for yourself.

Steps to go into lion pose:

1.      Kneel down on your knees, keeping your knees shoulder-width apart.

2.      Place your right ankle on your left ankle and sit comfortably on your heels. Now keep your palms over your knees and press firmly over it.

3.      Now inhale through your nose and while doing it, open your mouth and stretch your tongue out. Keep the tip out of your tongue towards your chin. Now while exhaling through your mouth make a sound 'ha' that should be powerful enough.

4.      Try to focus your gaze between your eyebrows or you can focus on the tip of nose too.

5.      Repeat this asana 3 to 4 times while switching the position of the leg.

Few contradictions:

·         It is best to avoid simhasana if you have weak knees.

·         If you have week wrist, then it is best to practice simhasana in Vajarasna position.

·         It is best to perform this yoga pose on an empty stomach, or you must leave the gap of at least six hours between your practice and your meals. You can also perform this yoga pose with other sitting poses like lotus pose and consult an experienced yoga practitioner before performing any yoga asana.

Benefits of Lion pose:

·         These are some fantastic health benefits of Simhasana.

·         It helps in reducing stress and tension from your system, especially from your chest and your face.

·         It firms your throat muscles by stimulating platysma, which is a thin rectangular muscle that lies in the front of your throat. It also lifts your face and fixes the problem of bad breathing.

·         It activates your three major yoga bandhas that is mula bandha, jalandhara bandha, and Uddiyana bandha.

·         It strengthens your hands and fingers and also relieves you from back pain.
