The Importance And Benefits Of Utkatasana

Aug 17, 2007
Utkatasana is also known as the Powerful or Fierce pose. This pose is similar to you sitting on a chair, except that you have to balance yourself without a chair. Many call this pose the Chair Pose. Even though sitting on a chair continuously for 8 - 10 hours at your workplace may not prove beneficial. But 'not sitting' on a non-existent chair helps you with so many benefits.

Every pose of yoga teaches you something unique. The name given to each asana does not reflect just a name but an inner thought which is needed to know that feeling. When we talk about this asana it becomes very important to know that it does not talk about fierce or power in an attacking manner.

The power or fierceness would signify the importance that every part of your body tries to attain. Here the imaginary chair helps you find that power, the power by which your sitting pose can be achieved without any support. Learning this would also let you know about your strength and stamina to hold this pose.

The pose is actually easy to perform unlike many other yoga poses which look easy but are very hard to do. The pose helps to stimulate the diaphragm and the heart which provides the extra power for the entire body to work its magic. The strength which drives this pose is in your pelvis which helps you to maintain that sitting position for a very long time.

This pose seems to be very simple but while doing this pose you have benefited in so many ways, you yourself will be astonished. There is fervor in your body due to this asana helps to strengthen it even more. Your overall body strength is boosted with this asana. Your pelvis opens up helping you with your spine and back.

Women suffering from menstrual cramping are provided a relief by doing this asana. Your lower muscles gets toned and entire muscle structure gets a proper shape due to the stress and pressure applied. Your butt which looks extra big due to the fat which is accumulated is also cleared, giving it proper shape.

It is very good for digestion and other problems you face with your immune system. The constant suffering from arthritis of the knees can be treated by regularly performing this pose. Your stiff body achieves flexibility in the ankles as well as toes. You can also reduce your flat fleet.

It also helps in relieving pains which your suffer at the joints. Your sciatica pain gets proper care by doing this asana. It also helps your liver, intestines and pancreas which get a good massage to work more efficiently.

Performing any of the asanas without consulting your doctor or yoga instructor can be fatal. Specially, if you are a person who hasn't exercised his/her entire life and is now attempting to get into that groove, it is better to be safe than sorry.
