Easy Pose Forward Bend provides a good stretch to your groin and inner thighs,
while strengthening your back. This pose also develops flexibility in your
hips and knees, as well as stimulating your abdominal organs, which can help
aid digestion. Performing this pose can also soothe your nervous system,
which helps clear and calm your mind. Specific yoga dvd can help you to learn
how to practice this pose, mostly seen on yoga for digestion. Just visit this
website for more information: yoga-dvds.net
As you bend forward in this pose, you should focus on lowering your abdomen
and chest, rather than your forehead. Keep in mind that lengthening your
spine is more important than trying to bend forward as far as possible. After
performing Easy Pose Forward Bend, you should shake out your legs to help
relieve your knees and ankles.
If your hips are stiff or your knees feel strained in this pose, sitting on
thickly folded blankets may make the pose more comfortable. Sitting on
blankets can also help prevent your lower back from rounding. Make sure you
use caution performing this pose if you have problems with your knees, hips,
lower back or spine.
1. Begin in Easy Pose.
2. Press your sitting bones into the floor and point the crown of your head
toward the ceiling to lengthen your spine.
3. Place your palms on the floor in front of you.
4. Spread your fingers out, with your middle fingers pointing forward.
5. Exhale as you bend forward from your hips and slide your hands forward
along the floor.
6. Keep your back straight as long as possible and then relax your shoulders
and head forward.
7. Hold the pose for 15 to 30 seconds and then inhale as you slowly curl up
to return to Easy Pose.
8. Repeat steps 1 to 7 placing the opposite leg on top in step 1.
