Hyper-Acidity is very common today! Our food habits have changed a lot due to the intake of so many fast foods available in the market! Our life is becoming complex and faster.
In hyper-acidity, one can face symptoms like Blood Pressure and Heart problems!
So be aware of this while you practice yoga. Don’t take oily, fried, and over-fried food, at least quite often. We are habituated to a fast lifestyle when we outsource our food from restaurants. It may be through home delivery as well. We do also take packaged food which is highly processed known as fast food. We must be aware that all these lead to bad health and for the yogis, it will be better to avoid these as much as possible!
Some yoga poses like Mayurasana(Peacock Pose) are unique in fighting this. Bow Pose is also good at tackling this.
There are some “to-do”s to control this!
Your diet is also important here. You should take a balanced diet. Take the diet timely and suitably.
We should not take too much Carbohydrate. These carb foods come from cereals.
The problem is that we buy these from the market where they are mostly highly processed and polished. We know that polished rice is not so good for health. For example, polished rice from rice mills is over-polished. The rice we get from hulling with a seesaw retains the red outer layer which is full of high-quality protein and minerals.
Benefits of Bow Pose (Dhanurasan) are numerous! We are living in a post-modern world where life and livelihood are very fast. But we have to stay stuck for hours together seated in front of the computer, mobile, and TV set, in a bend-forward position. This exerts extra pressure to the entire spine, from neck to lumbar. This Bow Pose can relieve you from all this extra pressure on your spine and brain, keep them lively, and free from lifestyle diseases like spondylosis, spondylitis, Blood Pressure, and Diabetes.
You need not worry about the said problems if you are a follower of this yoga practice. Just practice this and be free of these problems!
After a day of hectic work, this exercise feels just amazing. Even we can practice before we start our day. At the same time, it will address the deadliest of modern diseases like spondylosis, blood pressure, and sugar(diabetes). This exercise will keep us physically fit and mentally alert with its bend-backward position which will compensate for the whole day’s workload in a bend-forward position. This is the beauty of this exercise.
So, practice this and remain free and happy from those anxieties forever!
Its Complementary exercises:
Its Complementary exercises are Circle/Wheel Pose ( Chakrasana ). Three poses are generally practiced in the sequence as Cobra pose ( Bhujangasana ) > Bow Pose ( Dhanurasana ) > Circle/Wheel Pose ( Chakrasana ). Before that, we should have some warm-up exercises according to our own situations and conditions.
Don’t despair. Take heart that these backward bending exercises will put you back on track. And make you free from the stresses of life! Yoga poses like bow pose, wheel, cobra, and camel pose will take care of your spine, from neck to lumber, and keep you healthy and joyful. Encourage your loved ones to follow.
Yoga will take care of your neuropsychological well-being as well in a great way!
Your posture is very important to keep up the health of your spine. Always be mindful that you do not study, sit in wrong postures for long in front of your TV, Computer, Mobile Screens, etc. which can be uneasy and harmful in the short and long run.

Even after good posture, you need to have a break after a gap of 20-30 minutes and/or whenever you feel necessary. You should also limber up and bend yourself backward from head to lumbar in the same 20-30 minutes interval (whenever felt necessary) and these should be very light. Because you are doing these without any warm-ups! Get up from your chair from time to time (e.g. twice in an hour) and walk whatever space is available there.
Sedentary lifestyles in this postmodern age is giving birth to a host of diseases starting from spondylosis, diabetes, cardiac problems and food-chain related diseases and what not ? So we have to be careful to see to it that we do not fall prey to these. Don’t worry. Yoga is there to fight them off as an icing on the cake! But be cautious on those aspects as well.
