Bow Pose

Home » Uncategorized » Bow Pose

Bow Pose, in Sanskrit is Dhanurasasana— this back bend looks like an archer’s bow, the torso and legs representing the body of the bow and the arms the string. You can lie on a folded blanket for a little more cushioning for the hip bones. Make sure the knees are not wider than the width of your hips, and please keep the knees hip-width for the duration of the pose. Keep your back muscles soft, tighten your buttocks, press your shoulder blades firmly against your back to open your heart/chest; draw the tops of your shoulders away from your ears. Gaze forward. Breathe! Stay in the pose 20-30 sec, repeat if you would like. Great for the nervous system, to release fatigue and anxiety, ease respiratory ailments and constipation.Bow Pose
