Yoga is an art which can be performed even under water. In water, the elasticity and constancy of the body is enhanced. Therefore, it becomes easy to do even the most difficult poses. Here are some special yoga poses that can be performed under water effortlessly.
Sun Salutation pose– This pose helps in releasing physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the human body to the world. You can perform this pose under water, maintaining a level of water equal to the chest and shoulder. You should place one foot in front of the other so as to maintain constancy. You should constrict the muscles of abdomen, hold your spine in a neutral position, lift the chest, and bend the shoulders down.
