Raise your hand, if you’ve dealt with saggy skin after quitting the gym. Looks like most of us have been there and done that. Well, that’s because your body gets habituated to those weight training exercises, and when you deprive your body of those exercises, your muscles begin losing its elasticity. Result? Loose and jiggly skin.
That’s why only a holistic solution can save your soul – just like yoga. And if you are so concerned about toning your muscles, then nothing can work better than the adho mukha kapotasana.
We know the name sounds like a tongue twister, but adho mukha kapotasana can actually save your muscles. And if you hate lifting weights, then this one is a jackpot.
HERE’S WHAT THIS POSE ACTUALLY MEANS:
Adho means down
Mukha means face
Kapota means pigeon
So, if you go by the name, this asana is a half split with one leg stretched back.
