Pose Name: Mill Churning Pose

Indian Name: Chakki Chalanasana

• A good preventive for sciatica • Tones the back, abs and arm muscles • Opens up the chest and groin • Tones the uterine muscles in females, so it is very useful in preventing painful cycles if practiced regularly • Consistent practice helps reduce abdominal fat • Also very useful in reducing post-delivery fat (however, please consult your doctor before practicing this yoga posture)

Do not practice this asana if you are pregnant, have low blood pressure, extreme lower back pain due to slip disc, headaches or migraine (during the attack), or had a recent abdominal surgery, such as for active hernia.
