Ashwini Mudra
Posture Ashwa means horse, in this asana a similar movement of expansion and contraction of anus of horse is expected. To achieve maximum movements a specific position is taken which is called 'Ashwini Mudra".
Pre position Supine Position - Sarvangasana position.
  1. Fold both the legs in knees.
  2. Fold the legs in waist and press the thighs against stomach.
  3. Contract and expand the anus in this position.
  4. Continue normal breathing.
