This Asana involves another system of pulling the leg which gives the impression of a bow with an arrow to be shot and hence, the name Dhanurasana.
When one leg is lifted, the other leg and hand should be kept straight. The sight should be fixed on the other end of the straight hand. Once the Asana Position is taken, smooth breathing should continue.
Note: Do this asana in the above mentioned manner by taking up the right leg on the thigh of the left leg bringing in relevant changes in the position.
This latter Asana exerts more strain than the former. It should also be maintained for thirty seconds to experience its benefits.
In this asana the direction of strain is towards the joints of the waist.
The person with weak waist joints should not do this asana as it brings great strain to the joints.
