Uttanasana is a relaxing, if slightly challenging yogasana for a beginner. This mobilizes the lower limbs, improves working of the kidneys, decreases pain in menstrual cramps, and reduces overall stress in body and mind. This asana rejuvenates the spine in totality. It improves flexibility, and promotes mental calm. Not recommended for those with spinal injury, though.
