Standing Forward Bend

After you've moved through five rounds of Sun Salutation A followed by five rounds of Sun Salutation B, you're going to fall in love with Standing Forward Bend.

  • Begin in Mountain Pose at the front of your mat. Inhale, and reach your arms straight above you.
  • As you exhale, engage your abs, and fold forward with a straight back. Tuck your chin in toward your chest, relax your shoulders, and extend the crown of your head toward the floor to create a long spine. Shift your weight forward onto your toes, straightening your legs as much as possible. Place your hands on the ground, fingertips lining up with the toes.
  • Hold here for 10 breaths.
