Bow Pose

IMG_3388

Begin lying facedown on the mat. Bend the legs at the knees and reach your arms back to grab your ankles. On your inhale, lift the upper body off the mat and really lift and push through the legs so just your midsection remains on the mat. Stay here for 3-5 breaths and lower back down to the mat. Bow can be a really intense pose, so make sure the spine is warmed up (cobra, locust pose, etc…) and modify by working one side at a time!
