We all should do yoga, especially for mental peace. So let’s know how Balasana Yogamudra is beneficial for health.
Balasana or Child Vishram Pose is a wonderful asana of yoga. The name of this asana is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Bala’ (Bal), which means the child’s resting posture. Actually, if you look, you will find that this posture resembles the position of the fetus, that is, when a baby is in the mother’s stomach, it is in this posture. This is a relaxing pose, which focuses on the thighs, but all the muscles of the body are being used in it. If this asana is done with full gravity i.e. stretching, then it can have a great effect on the mental, physical and emotional momentum of the person.
Physiology related to Balasana:
Balasana is a restorative, calming pose, which relaxes the body and rejuvenates it. While doing this asana, the stretching of the back relaxes the spinal column, while on the other hand, the muscles calm down, which helps in reducing the pain. It especially stresses the back, neck, and shoulders. In addition, it relaxes the knees by stretching them and prepares the tendons for long work. This mudra actually promotes positive emotions and makes you feel mentally healthy.
