From speaking of yoga asanas to relief back pain issues to demonstrating asanas and speaking of its benefits and steps to perform, Anshuka’s Instagram profile is full of pictures and videos of herself in yoga positions.


Anshuka shared a picture of herself performing the asana and wrote in detail about it. “Kukkutasana, also known as the rooster pose, is an arm balancing asana where the entire weight of the body is positioned on the arms. A rather complicated and difficult asana, Kukkutasana helps in strengthening the muscle groups of the entire body using the arm, core and the pelvic muscles. It also helps in toning the abdominal muscles and boosting the digestive system.”


“While it is a difficult asana to perform, flexibility, stability, concentration and core strength are the main elements that will help you perfect this Yoga asana,” added Anshuka. However, she also added that a few steps should be taken before performing flexibility, stability, concentration and core strength. For beginners, Anshuka suggested, “Practice your planks, strengthen your wrists and core, work on hip and ankle mobility.” she further added.
