The tiger pose or Vyagrasana pose was designed by yogis after carefully observing the way the tiger deals with the food. Performing it makes the digestive system stronger and tones the muscles of the abdomen, which in turns burns off excess fat and trims the waist. Striking tiger is a variation of the cat pose that involves a balance, provides a diagonal body stretch and builds core stability. It also steps up the bone loading element of the traditional cat pose.
If you overheat , the performance of both the body and the mind is impaired because the the body had to deal with breaking down and absorbing the extra food. Performing the tiger pose gives the body a helping hand to remove any foods and liquids it does not require. If you practice the tiger pose at least once a week you will notice a difference in the shape of your abdomen and hips, your sexual organs and back will fell stronger and your posture and stamina will improve.
