If you're looking to increase flexibility in your spine and get an amazing neck stretch, Plow pose is just the thing. Sometimes doing it on your own can be a little too intense, so if you do this pose with a friend, you can help support the weight of each other's legs. There will also be less pressure on your neck so you can spend more time in this restorative position.
To find out how to do Double Plow,
- Both partners lie on the floor with their heads touching. They extend their arms overhead and hold onto each other's shoulders.
- Then they both raise their legs up towards the ceiling and use their ab strength to lift their hips off the ground, bringing their feet towards their partner's hips or ribs (depending on how flexible they are).
- They stay like this for a few minutes, and when they're ready to come out, they hold onto each other's shoulders and use their core strength to gently lower their hips to the ground.
