Hand to Feet Pose – If you sit for hours at work or school, this one may make you feel older than you are for the first few seconds in this posture each day. The forward bending posture allows your spine to stretch while utilizing gravity by stretching your upper body down towards the floor. A little extra arm strength, as you pull on your heels, deepens the intensity of this stretch for the back side of your entire body.
- Strengthens the upper body by using arm and upper back muscles to pull
- Lengthens the spine relieving pressure on the vertebra
- Stretches all the muscles in the back of the legs and hips
