4.  Hold in this position for about 10 to 20 seconds with even breathing.

Therapeutic Advantages

1.  Though many  of the therapeutic advantages are similar to Mayurasana in this exercise as the entire body balance rests on wrists, it gives enough strength to wrists and hands.

2. Abdominal disorders and digestive disorders are effectively cured.

3.  Provides strength to the elbows, forearms and wrists.  Hence it is recommended for artists, athletes and sportsmen.
