  • Spines stretching also expedites the feeding of the nervous system with fresh blood and oxygen.
  • Rabbit Pose relieves tension in the neck, shoulders and back.
  • It helps alleviate colds, sinus problems, and chronic tonsillitis and, through compression of thyroid and parathyroid, rejuvenates those glands as well.
