Bow Pose (Dhanurasana)

Spread the love
Bow Pose (Dhanurasana) :

In this pose the body takes the shape of  an Archer’s bow, the torso and legs representing the body of the bow, and the arms as the string. That is why, it is called Bow pose. Literally dhanus means bow, and asana meaning pose. It is a backward bending yoga exercise and we call it Challenge Pose as well.

How to Practice Bow Pose (Dhanurasana) :
  • Make sure that you have your proper warm-up session before going for Bow Pose and your stomach is not
  • Lie down on your belly on a mat or on a soft thin layer. The floor /surface should be even enough so that the weight of your body is well-distributed on it
  • The surface should not be either too hard or too soft
  • Open up your palms to catch hold of the ankles from outside
  • Pull the legs towards your back, bending the knees, closer to your headsThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pexels-photo-3822366.jpeg
