Powerful Yoga Pose
As the name suggests, this Yoga Pose builds inner power, strength, and heat by drawing all your energy inside your body. With the longer hold, it fires up your legs and abdominal muscles as well as your willpower. This Yoga Pose is also called Lightning Bolt because of both its shape and energizing quality!
