57. Purna Dhanurasana
The Bow Pose

The entire body bears the strain and becomes more elastic. The whole weight falls on the abdominal area near the navel and due to the pressure on the abdominal aorta, blood circulates properly round the abdominal organs. This keeps them healthy and improves the digestion. In this posture the shoulder blades are well stretched so that stiffness in the shoulders is relieved.
