Upward Salute (Urdhva Hastasana)

Upward Salute is taken into account as a base pose, as upward salute variations will be derived from this pose. The Upward Salute increases energy levels in the body and will thus be included in flow yoga sequences. A salute is used as a preparatory yoga pose to prepare the body for a variety of intense yoga poses.

Beginner’s Tips

If it's too troublesome to straighten your arms higher than your head, then you'll be able to use a yoga belt. Create a loop with the belt and slide it around your arms right above the elbow joints. Tighten the belt so your arms can not move any further than shoulder-width, excluding one another. Then raise your arms higher than your head.


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 - Stand on your yoga mat in a mountain pose, feet down with your hallux mounds, heel, and outside edges of your feet. Pull up your inner arches.
2 - Gently unharness your tailbone toward your heels by rotating your inner thighs back.
3 - Draw your shoulders back, soften your front ribs, and stack the crown of your head higher than your pelvis, lifting your chin parallel to the ground.
4 - Raise your arms overhead together, shoulder distance apart, and palms facing each other.
5 - Bring your arms in line with your ears. Allow your skeletal muscles to rotate backward and your shoulder blades to move up and out away from your spine.
6 - If you’re able to keep your arms straight, direct your gaze to your thumbs. Take many breaths, then unharness your arms.
