Shithilikarana Vyayama

Shithilikarana Vyayama is the rapid movement, twisting & turning of body parts. These include slow jogging (upward, backward & sideward), bending (Forward, Backward & Sideward) & twisting of spine & waist.

Jogging (upward, backward & sideward)

Stand erect, legs to be placed 1 foot apart. Place your thumb on the root of your little finger & close all other fingers. Keep the clasped hand on the chest. Slowly stand on your toes & start jogging. 

After 10 counts, start jogging forward. As you jog push your knee up & try to touch the chest. Repeat for 20 counts.

Now start jogging backward- I.e. start pushing your knee back ward while jogging so that your heel can touch the buttocks. Continue for 20 counts.

3rd step is to jog sideways- I,e, as you jog, start turning your knee side ward, so that your left knee goes towards left & right knee towards right  when you lift it off the ground. Continue for 20 counts.

Jogging should always be followed by Mukha Dhouti (Mukha – Face, Dhouti – Cleansing) which helps to relive the strain & brings the rhythm of breathing back to normalcy.

 Stand erect, slowly bend your spine forward & keep your palm on respective knees. Relax, inhale through your nose & exhale forcibly (blast out the breath) through mouth. Repeat 3 to 4 times.
