Head-To-Knee Forward Bend (Janu Sirsasana) is a great pose that can be practiced by all levels of students. Besides the obvious benefits such as stretching the spine, shoulders, hamstrings, and groins, it also has a calming effect on the brain and helps relieve mild depression. It stimulates the liver and kidneys, improves digestion, helps relieve the symptoms of menopause, relieves anxiety, fatigue, headache, and menstrual discomfort. It is considered therapeutic for high blood pressure, insomnia, and sinusitis. Practice with caution when you have asthma, diarrhea, or knee injury. Don’t flex the injured knee completely and support it on a folded blanket.
