Table pose is a relaxing posture that relieves tension in the spine. In this pose, the chest is not under as much pressure, so the lungs can expand freely for a deeper and more fulfilling pranayama practice.
The health benefits of table pose include:
- Strengthens the wrists, arms and shoulders
- Stretches the spine
- Tones the back muscles
- Expands the chest and improves lung capacity
Table pose is often used as a transitional posture when moving between seated poses and inversions.
