Move Background

This backbend stretches the whole body, especially the chest and shoulders. This pose is so called Bow because it looks like an archer’s bow, the torso and legs representing the body of the bow, and the arms the string.

  • Lift body upwards, facing the ceiling, spin inner thighs in the same direction, spread and lift the chest.
  • Stay in this pose anywhere from 20 to 30 seconds.
