Seated Forward Bend Pose (Paschimottanasana)

Seated Forward Bend Pose, also called Paschimottanasana, may be a sitting posture and comes below the class of sitting yoga poses. This lovely yoga pose stretches the spine to its most curved point, keeping the muscles around it toned.

Seated Forward Bend Pose

Beginner’s Tip

Resist lowering your head, shoulders, and spine toward your shins. Doing so can cause you to sprain your upper back. Pascimottanasana maintains a flat back.

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.

Tip To Do -

1 - Begin by sitting on the ground in a staff pose, with your legs stretched straight ahead of your body or on your thighs. Put your hands above your head.
2 -  Now, inhale while keeping your spine up and straight. As you exhale, slowly bend forward towards your toes the maximum amount your body permits. Stay in this position for a couple of seconds and breathe unremarkably and slowly.
3 - To release from this position, raise your head and slowly come to the initial starting position with your legs stretched.
4 - One may perform this position by lying down on the ground with the hands stretched behind the pinnacle because of the initial position. Once rising from this position, one will repeat the remainder of the Paschimottanasana steps.
5 - Once the Paschimottanasana yoga is completed, it's wise to perform any position that involves bending backward as a counter stretch.
