Best Four Yoga Poses For Beginners
This asana provides a full-body stretch—ideal for relaxation and eliminating stress. It might also help with digestion because the forward fold compresses your stomach.
1-Sit up tall, stretching your legs out in front of you and placing your hands on the ground at your sides. Keep your tailbone on the ground and extend the crown of your head upward.
2-Walk your hands toward your knees and tilt your pelvis forward until you find your edge. Relax your head, neck, and arms, letting gravity do the work. Slightly bend your knees to prevent them from locking up. Hold. Inhale and exhale slowly, steady breaths through your nose. Slowly reverse out of the pose.
MAKE IT EASIER
In step 1, sit on a block to help your pelvis tilt forward. You can also place a bolster between your chest and legs for more support or you can add a smaller bolster under your knees to keep them bent.
BE AWARE Because this asana can stretch the muscles around your spine, if you have sciatica pain, performing this pose could aggravate that condition.
