Kurmasana or the Tortoise Pose or Turtle pose is so called because the asana looks like a tortoise in the final pose. The name has been derived from a Sanskrit word ‘Kurma’ which means ‘a tortoise’. While performing this, your body resembles the shape of a tortoise, that is why it is named so. This asana is important to the spiritual discipline of Yoga. It develops a feeling of serenity. Well, it is quite difficult to perform, but with the regular practice it becomes easier. Kurmasana tones the entire abdominal muscles, removes belly fat and is good for diabetes.

How to Get Into Better Shape

Health and fitness is not only a point of health, but of mental and psychological wellness. Working out the mind by discovering new things and exercising the body with aerobics, is extremely important for total health. Read through this article for tips on how to keep entirely in shape, in and out, for a far healthier way of living.

When you have a desk task and they are interested in keeping yourself in shape, look at keeping a small-stepper beneath your desk and use it for a couple minutes of every hour or so. Even five minutes of exercise an hour will make a huge difference. This may also prevent the soreness and rigidity related to extended times of inactivity.

Each time you reach one of your fitness goals treat yourself to a small, but satisfying reward. You deserve a reward for each step of your plan that you complete. Despite the obstacles, you managed to meet your goal. Give yourself a small serving of dessert, or better yet, just spend some quality time with your family and friends. A new outfit might also be a great way to celebrate your success. Knowing you have a reward in wait will be like a beacon directing you to safe water!
