Uttanasana is one of the foundation movements for Headstand. The blood supply to your brain will be increased, due to the inverted position of your body and head, thereby refreshing your brain. So, if Headstand is not practised for any reason, Uttanasana is an excellent alternative. Your heart rate will be slowed down, so you will feel calm and quiet. This movement can give relief to those suffering from Mild Depression. Uttanasana is an intense stretch for your legs, so your ankle, knee and hip joints will be opened and made more flexible. Your vertebrae will be made spacious, so your spine will lengthen. Your abdominal muscles and organs are contracted here, creating a massaging effect within your whole abdominal cavity.
If you suffer from spinal disc disorder, use blocks, underneath your shoulders to support your hands. If you suffer from Low Blood Pressure, come out of the movement slowly.
