Simhasana In Yoga.
Relieves tension in the chest and face.
An often-overlooked benefit of Simhasana is that it stimulates the platysma, a flat, thin, rectangular-shaped muscle on the front of the throat. The platysma, when contracted, pulls down on the corners of the mouth and wrinkles the skin of the neck. This technique helps keep the platysma firm as we age.
According to traditional texts, Simhasana destroys disease and facilitates the three major bandhas (Mula, Jalandhara, Uddiyana).
Simhasana also has therapeutic benefits for people with bad breath or for those who stutter.
