Backbend, also known as Chakrasana, involves intense backward bends. This exercise sets momentum for the circulatory, nervous and endocrine system, besides improving overall strength and flexibility. It stretches the abdominal muscles and boosts energy.

This is not the first time Varun has attempted a backbend. He performed it for the first time only a while ago, under the supervision of yoga trainer Mihir Jogh. Given the ease with which he does it this time proves how practice can help you master a skill.
