Locust Pose

IMG_6381

Locust is another great warm-up for deeper backbends such as bow pose. Begin lying face-down on your mat. Reach your arms back behind you and clasp your hands together. If clasping the hands is difficult, use a strap or simply reach both arms back. On your next inhale, lift the chest and legs off of the mat. Keep your legs pressed together and project the chest forward. Remember to keep reaching your arms towards your feet! Stay for a few breaths before relaxing back down to your mat.
