Melt Away Tension with Wide-Leg Seated Forward Bends

Julie Gudmestad

Forward bends allow for deep release: they peel off layers of physical and muscular tension, leaving us feeling calm and renewed. While these poses also stretch out tight hips and hamstrings, the main emphasis of this practice is on letting go. You should feel more mobility in your spine and ribcage from this practice, which will improve your posture and deepen your breathing. In this video, Julie also offers preparatory options that make the benefits of these poses more accessible.
