Dr.Hansaji Yogendra, Director at The Yoga Institute says that when it comes to Homemakers, they go through a lot of work and stress than what they are actually given credit for! Right from the kitchen responsibilities to cleaning and maintaining the house, to looking after the kids and even getting their homework done, and what not! After all of this done, only then she thinks about herself and takes care of her needs. However, a woman, especially a homemaker, should always put herself first. It is only when she is happy and healthy will the household be happy and healthy. Only a full pot will be able to fill the empty glasses.

To beat the stress and fatigue, and stay at the optimum health levels, every homemaker must practice these 3 Yoga asanas suggested by Dr.Hansaji Yogendra, Director at The Yoga Institute:

Yastik means a stick, and the asana takes a similar form. It stretches all the muscles of the body. It causes deep pressure on the muscular tissues as well as on the organs, thereby improving the blood circulation.

For this asana:

Lie down on your back with your feet together and hands by the side of the body.

Inhaling, raise both your hands above your head on the ground and point your toes downwards.

So there is an opposite stretch in the body.

Hold the position for 5-6 seconds with normal breathing and relax.

Bhujangasana

This is a simple backward bending asana that helps to reduce stress and fatigue.

Bhujangasana comes to the rescue to get some relief from lower back pain from doing all the household chores.

For this asana:

Lie on your stomach with your hands by the side of the body.

Place your hands by the side of the chest, bending them at the elbows.

Inhaling, raise your head and neck upwards to look up towards the ceiling. Raise your upper body only until the navel, and keep your feet together.

Remain in the final position for 6 seconds and gently release the asana.

From standing all day long, the legs feel a lot of pressure of the body weight. Some inversion is necessary to reverse the blood flow and improve circulation. Besides that, it also makes your mind alert giving you a feeling of self-confidence and self-reliance.

For this asana:

Lie down on your back with the feet together and the hands by the side of the body.

Bend both your knees, feet close to the hips. Using your hands to lift the hips up, exhaling, raise the legs up together with both knees bent to make an angle with the body from the hips.

Slowly, straighten your legs, with your toes pointing towards the ceiling. The knees remain straight. Use your hands to support the back.

The chin is set in the jugular notch.

Maintain this pose for 10-12 seconds and gently release the pose in the same reverse manner.
