Hi there, well you all know that yoga is actually good for you. This pose – plow pose stimulates your abdominal organs and thyroid gland. It can assist with backache, headaches and insomnia.

Have a go! Lie on your back and lift your feet toward the ceiling without lifting your hips of the ground. If you are already feeling challenged stay here. Now pull your navel to your spine, this activates your core and lift your feet up and over your head towards or to the floor. Now wriggle your shoulders under your back and interlace your fingers reaching them outwards. Breathe deeply and easily. Focus of relaxing the muscles in your face and keep your head and neck still. Stay in the pose for one to two minutes then slowly come out.  Bring your knees together feet close to your buttocks and relax.
