Pros and Cons of Locust Pose (Shalvasana)

Locust Poses(Shalvasana), both Full-Fledged and Half, have immense benefits. For example:

  • It makes the muscles of the abdomen and thighs stronger.
  • Helps recover sciatica and rheumatism of the waist and lower lumbar areas
  • Helps increase the digestion, bloating, and constipation

It is very strange that this pose helps the heart function well, but at the same time, those having heart problems have been advised not to practice this.

It is very natural that this pose will put pressure on one’s lungs and heart. So don’t practice this without checking your Heart and Lungs.

I practice Bow Pose instead of Locust Pose.
