Spiritual Awakening: intermediate yoga poses | day 20

“Praying is talking to the Universe. Meditation is listening to it.”


Bow Pose

Sanskrit: Dhanurasana

How to do it


Lie facedown, roll your shoulder blades down the back, and send your arms back behind you. Bend your knees so that your feet are near your butt.


On an inhale, lift your upper body and legs off the floor, keeping the hips grounded. Reach back to grab outer ankles. Use the leverage to lift your body up and broaden across the chest.

The benefits


This backbend stretches the whole front of the body, especially the chest and the front of your shoulders. It also gives a nice massage to your abdominal organs.



Live the actual moment.
