People who are working from home and for long hours often develop body pain or stiffness. It is because the long duration of work builds a lot of pressure in the body. Let's discuss asanas to strengthen the body and rejuvenate it.

Grand Master Akshar suggests a series of five saralasanas that will give you strength and rejuvenate you.

1. Dandasana (Staff Pose)


  • Sit on the mat with your legs extended together
  • Raise your hands and keep them straight
  • Inhale and exhale slowly
  • Bring your hands forward and then lift your hands
  • Inhaling and exhaling will continue while doing this
  • Slowly bring your hands down and keep inhaling and exhaling

2. Kandharasana (Shoulder Pose)


  • Lie down flat on your back
  • Hold the ankles with your hands
  • Inhale and raise your middle body upwards.
  • Hold your breath for some time.
  • Very slowly get back to your starting pose while exhaling slowly
  • Repeat

3. Pada Uttanasana (Raised Leg Pose)


  • Lie down flat on your back
  • Lift your legs slowly
  • Fold your legs and slowly bring them down while inhaling and exhaling
  • Repeat
  • Come out of the pose from the right side

4. Padmasana (Lotus Pose)


  • Sit in a cross-legged position
  • Bend the right knee and place it on the left thigh
  • Repeat with the other leg
  • Sit in this asana in a relaxed way and inhale and exhale slowly
  • We can inhale and exhale for 2 minutes

5. Eka Pada Padangusthasana (Single Leg Toe Holding In Squat Pose)


  • Keep one leg firmly on the floor
  • Grab the big toe on the other leg
  • Now lift your leg gently
  • Hold the pose and inhale and exhale slowly

Every asana has to be repeated three times and you must hold your breath for 10-20 seconds at least.
