Seated Staff Pose might look easy, but it’s an intense strength-builder for the upper back, chest, and abdomen. This pose is the foundational posture for all seated poses, including twists. Because it provides the structural basis for all seated poses, it is essentially the seated version of Mountain Pose (Tadasana).
Ardha Matsyendrasana – Half Spinal Twist Pose
Ardha Matsyendrasana usually appears as a seated spinal twist with many variations, and is one of the twelve basic asanas in many systems of Hatha Yoga. This is one of the few poses in the Basic Session that rotates the spine. Most bend the spinal column either backward or forward, but to become truly flexible it must be twisted laterally as well. The movement also tones the spinal nerves and ligaments, and improves the digestion.
Makarasana – Crocodile Pose
In Sanskrit language “Makara” means Crocodile that is why this asana is also known as Crocodile Pose. It is one of the best and easiest asanas for curing problems related to back & knees. This asana is just same as Shavasana which provides relaxing and de-stressing feeling to your entire body.
Salabhasana – The Locust Pose
Salabhasana – the name comes from the Sanskrit words “shalabh” which means “grasshopper”. It is back bend, or spine stretch, using the strength of the upper and middle back to lift the weight of the legs as high as possible from a starting position face down on the floor. It improves flexibility and coordination and increases strength and stamina. It helps to exercise the spine.

This rejuvenating backbend will open your chest up and keep your spine flexible. Setu Bandhasana will also help to prepare you for more intense backbends. Basically this pose is effective in relaxing the body and reducing stress.
