  • Easy Pose And Eye Training - Sit in easy pose or Sukhasana. Sit on a yoga mat folding your legs at knees and placing the left foot under the right knee and the right foot under the left knee. Corpse your hands on your respective knees and breathe normally. To be healthy and strong, like any other muscles eye muscles also needs exercise. To perform eye exercises first look up, then down without moving your head. Look on the extreme right and then on the extreme left without moving your head.

Repeat the same act in anti-clockwise direction.
  • Bow Pose Or Dhanurasana - This pose will help to mobilize your entire spinal cord, expand your chest and can give a surprising change to your unusual body movement. This pose will also help to improve you posture and strengthen your back muscles. To perform this pose lie flat on your stomach with arms on your side and palms facing upwards.  Bend your legs at knees and bring your heels near your buttocks. With your arms reach back and grasp your ankles. Rest your weight on your stomach and not on your pelvis. Pull your ankles with your hands and raise your knees. For a relaxed mind and body increase the backward bend and the stretching in your chest. Continue to breathe normally and hold for 30 seconds. Relax while exhaling.
