Shavasana (Corpse Pose)

After hours of workload, you feel dead inside. The body needs rest and the mind requires peace. Savasana provides a much-needed relaxation to the mind and body so that one feels rejuvenated all day long. The asana resembles the position of a corpse and is practiced in still motion, lying flat on the ground with free hands and legs. During the exercise, keep your eyes closed to feel the flow of serenity in the body.

Utkata Konasana (Goddess Pose)

One of the best exercises for women, Utkata Konasana is all about being energetic. It is known as the Goddess Pose, for its practice mirrors the Hindu Goddess of power, Durga. Stand erect on the mat to widen your feet and bent the knees till it makes a right angle. Close your eyes and join your palms in prayer near the chest. In addition to offering immense inner strength, the pose is helpful in giving relief from constipation and a backache.

Navasana (Boat Pose)

Navasana is one of the most effective balancing Yoga poses. As a sailor maintains the balance of a boat in a river, Navasana nurtures the body and mind in such a way that one feels extreme stability in life. During the pose, the upper and lower halves of the body remain in the air and only the buttocks on the ground, balancing the body weight. Also, hands should be parallel to the ground. This pose is beneficial for strengthening the thighs, arms and abdomen. It also sponsors proper digestion.

Vriksasana (Tree Pose)

Tree stands for stability and stability is what a working woman needs the most in her life. Vrksasana teaches one to face difficulties with vigor and conquer every situation. This is a standing pose, which is performed on one leg. During the practice, the hands should be in the air, in Namaskar pose to enjoy the spiritual elements of Yoga. The exercise nourishes the mind in a constructive way and gives strength to arms and legs.
