Hanumanasana Beginner’s Tips

It is not a fundamental yoga stance, and it takes serious practice to play out the split. When you rehearse Hanumanasana (Monkey Pose) at first, you can utilize a cover under your lower legs and knees to make it more agreeable. Increment the length of the middle by squeezing the back foot into the floor. Daily practice is needed coz it is a very intense pose, so without practices of basic asana don’t do this posture immediately.

Benefits of Hanumanasana (Monkey Pose)

When you begin to practice this asana, your focus will be on your front leg and how tight it feels. You will feel the urge to stretch your hamstrings as much as you can to get the flexibility this asana requires. However, you must keep in mind that this asana requires your front and back legs to be equally flexible. If the front leg requires suppleness in the hamstrings, the back leg has to be open enough at the hip flexors. Once you manage to get this right, you will be able to balance yourself in this pose.

It doesn’t matter whether your pelvis touches the floor or not. What is more important is that you protect your lower back, and push only as much as it can go. The key is to always pick up the signs your body gives, and stop when it asks you to. You could use the support of cushions and bolsters, but most importantly, you must use your leg muscles to support your pelvis. This advice might seem odd as this asana is, after all, a stretch of the leg. But by hugging your inner thighs towards each other and pressing your legs down, not only will it help to stretch your pelvis up, but it will also help engage your hamstrings and support your joints. Just remember to keep your breathing right through all the muscular action.

NOTE:
