Dolasana (pendulum pose) is a dynamic asana that is used to relax the spinal column and alleviate any tension in the upper body. It activates the energy in Swadhisthana which helps in the regulation of the unconscious nature of our mind.
This posture is used therapeutically for alleviating backache. Through the inverted swing blood flow to the brain and face is increased which influences the youthfulness of the facial tissues and the neurological functions of the brain. This practice should be avoided by those who suffer from high blood pressure or vertigo.
