In this topic we will discuss two backward bending asanas - setu asana and chakrasana. These two asanas give similar benefits; therefore it is not necessary to do both of them. Those who are able should practise the more difficult chakrasana; those who cannot do chakrasana can practise setu asana instead.
SETU ASANA (BRIDGE POSE)
The Sanskrit word setu means 'bridge'. Therefore, in English this asana can be called 'bridge pose".
