Standing Forward Bend
Relieve tension all the way down your spine with Standing Forward Bend. This pose will also start to warm up your belly.
- Stand at the top of your mat in Mountain Pose. 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 the head toward the floor to create a long spine. Shift your weight forward onto your toes, straightening the legs as much as possible. Place your hands on the ground, fingertips lining up with the toes.
- Hold here for 10 breaths.
