K for "Kurmasana"

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.

Kurmasana (Tortoise pose) helps in stretching one's back and legs while stretching the hamstrings. It improves the functioning of the digestive and respiratory systems and elongates the spine. Therapeutic benefits include increase in mental clarity and memory due to increased blood flow to the brain.

  7. Love the camel sketch. I have a feeling that pose would be much easier for me than for the camel, which makes me have hope. ;)
