Ankita contorted her body in such a way that her right leg twisted behind her to touch her head, which bent backwards supported by her hands.

She wrote in the caption that Eka Pada Rajakapotasana “improves flexibility in hips, pelvis and groin”.

It also “opens up shoulders and chest, lengthens the flexors of hips, opens up hip joints and increases the range of movements”.

Yoga works on physical, mental and also emotional health. According to Ankita, “it is our primal reaction to store stress, trauma, fear and anxiety in the hips” and bottling up our feelings can “create tight hips”.

“This posture opens the hips and releases negative feelings and undesirable energy stored in your system,” she wrote.
