Uttanasana is a forward bending pose which relieves us from stress and anxiety. With the arm bind, this standing forward bend variation provides a deep shoulder stretch. By binding the hands, it also allows the arms to stretch and tighten the shoulders to relax. It also brings some blood back to the brain while giving a great stretch to the legs.
- Start in Mountain pose with your feet hip-width apart.
- With your hands on your hips, inhale.
- On the exhale, fold forward at the hips and reach your hands to your thighs, shins, ankles, or floor. The other option is to bend your arms and hold on to your elbows.
- As you breathe in this posture, allow your neck to relax and continue to lengthen the spine, feeling your breath move all the way down your back into your lower back.
