Are you suffering from leg cramps often??? Here is the yoga for you !!!

Many a times when I do my yoga classes, I get  leg cramps and sometimes everybody and especially kids while growing up  get leg cramps. My yoga tutor would give some few asanas to get rid of it.

Downward Dog

Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose)

This pose sends out energy throughout the body. It provides a great inversion, by increasing circulation

1. Start the asana with sitting on the floor on your hands and knees (Vajraj-asana pose),
2. Stretch your elbows and relax the upper back between the shoulder blades, while doing so you will feel that the arms fall into the shoulder blades.
3. Breathe out and lift the knees and draw your back backwards from the pelvis, so that your arms and back form one line.
4. Stretch your legs in such a way that you feel like someone pulling your legs and hips backwards and let your head hang down in a relaxed sort of way.
5. Now stretch out your arms. This will result in a stretching from two sides i.e. a stretching from the pelvis and a stretching from the arms. When the back and the chest are placed correctly, you will notice that you can quietly breathe in and out through the belly. You should not let your chest hang downwards or make your back extremely sunken.
6. While performing Adho Mukha Svanasana the back should be lengthened along its entire length.

Hold Adho Mukha Svanasana for anywhere around 30 to 60 seconds or as long as you are comfortable
