Benefits
 
Your abdomen will get flatter, and the waistline gets smaller. Digestive organs will contract, and begin to work well. From head to toe, all nerves in the body are activated. Gas trouble will recede. This is also ideal for women who would like to reduce their waistline after childbirth.

Note - After practicing stage one of Uthana Pada Asana for 3-4 days (lifting legs 1-2 feet), try stage two (lifting legs 4-6 inches).
