A seated pose that strengthens your core.

Whether you are a homemaker or carry on with a 9 to 6 work shift, every woman has long standing as well as sitting hours. From the moment the morning alarm buzzes to the time when you bid good night to your children, the probability is that you’ve got less an hour lying straight on a bed in between. These long sitting and standing hours are the most common reasons for tight hips and lower backache.

Although there are many yoga poses or asanas that can come to your rescue, it’s often lack of time that keeps women to follow them in routine.

However, Butterfly Pose is one asana that will take less than 5 minutes of your time and you can do it at the comfort of your home. The Butterfly Pose or Titali Asana is simple to do and requires no special arrangement.
