Halfmoon - How to Master Upward Bow Pose

If you spend a good deal of your time working in front of a computer or slouched at an office chair, you might very well need to strengthen your spine with some backbends. The benefits of arching your body in this way include greater circulation for the heart and lungs, activation of the nervous system and yes, better posture.

If the idea of pushing your abdomen towards the sky with your hands seems daunting, don’t worry. You can always start by using props to ease into the pose. Our friend David Good has made this step-by-step video to help you learn to master the Supported Urdhva Dhanurasana – or the Upward Bow Pose. Check it out.
