Supta udarakarshanasana (Lying abdominal twist)

July 20, 2007
Lie on your back. Spread your arms out, placing them on the floor, palms down. Inhale. Bend the right leg at the knee. Place the right sole on the left thigh. Exhale, using your left hand press down right knee to floor on the left.

Simultaneously, twist your head to gaze at the right hand. Hold for a few seconds, without letting off the pressure on the bent knee, breathing evenly. Release. Repeat three to five times. Relax. Repeat entire sequence for the other side.

Benefits: The benefits are the same as the prevoius asana, but with greater impact on the abdomen, thus further promoting weight loss.
