Standing Forward Bend
Allow all the stress to melt and pour off your back in 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 your toes.
- Hold here for five breaths.
