Day 38: A Yoga Pose That Releases Evening Stress

Friday, February 07, 2020

Stretch the back of your entire body.

Seated Forward Bend

Starting Position
Sit on the floor, back straight, shoulders down, abs engaged and legs extended in front of you.

Bend forward from the waist, reaching your hands towards your toes.
Imagine reaching your chin towards your toes in front of you (not towards your legs).
Breathe deeply and hold for 10-30 seconds.

Special Instructions
Stretch to the point of "mild discomfort," not to the point of pain.
Never bounce.
Keep shoulders relaxed and back straight.
To reduce the intensity of this stretch, bend the knees slightly.

Muscles Worked: Hamstrings, Back
