Such as:

•back, neck and ankle pain
•biorhythmic imbalance,
•Thinness of adipose tissue
•Becoming unfocused

Reasons for these problems:
•trying to bend any area of the body without proper flexibility
•not warming up before practice
•bending the body beyond its limit of flexibility
•holding the posture for too long Yoga mat – around $15 to $20

Stone carvings found in the Indus Valley dating back 5,000 years or more that showed figures in Yoga positions.
Hinduism incorporated some of the practices of Yoga.
Yoga probably arrived in the United States in the late 1800s, but it did not become widely known until the 1960s.

In sitting poses the pectoralis major (chest), rectus abdominis (abdominal) and lliopsoas (hip) muscles are just a few of the muscles used. In the tree pose the gastrocnemius (calves), semimembranosus (hamstrings), and tibialis anterior (leg) muscles are strengthened. Also the rectus femoris (quadricep) muscles are stretched.

The muscle movements in the tree pose are rotations in the hips. Rotations are used in the bow pose.
