C for "Chakrasana"

This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images.



Chakrasana (Wheel pose) stretches the lungs, chest, abdomen and quadriceps. It strengthens the buttocks, legs, calves, wrists, arms and spine. While it helps the digestive system, it also stimulates the thyroid and pituitary glands.

Disclaimer: Yoga creates simple to complex impacts on the physical body. Make sure you consult your doctor and start the practice with a trained teacher.

    1. I agree, I think I like the sketch just as much (as an artist's point of view).

    2. The primary purpose of choosing the theme is to keep alive my passion for Yoga and arts. Rested the words for a month. The simple info is a bit of what I have heard, practiced and read.
