The video begins with Malaika doing the Vyaghrasana or Tiger Pose and then doing a one-legged variation of the Cat Pose. She did the first pose by getting in the Table Top pose and then stretching one leg and the opposite hand on the opposite ends. Then, Malaika contracted her extended hand and leg to join the elbow and the knee just below her torso. She did the flow exercise for four counts in the clip.
Vyaghrasana or Tiger Pose benefits:
Vyaghrasana or the Tiger Pose relieves back pain, alleviates sciatica by relaxing the sciatic nerves, loosens leg and hip joints, improves spine flexibility, strengthens the core muscles of the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips and legs, and targets the spine. It is also a beneficial exercise for mothers shortly after giving birth.
Meanwhile, the International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually on June 21 since 2015. The theme for International Day of Yoga 2022 is ‘Yoga for humanity.’
