RYA - 007 - Dhanurasana
Dhanu means bow. Since this asana posture looks like that of a bow ready to release its arrow, it has been named so. This asana renders rapid stimulation to all the parts of the body from the shoulders to the soles of the legs, hip bones, spinal cord, shoulder bones, bones of the hands - joints of all the parts are greatly strengthened. This asana provides great relief to problems like hip pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. Another important advantage of this asana and its subsidiary asana is the relief and cure for diabetes.
