Easing into Urdhva Dhanurasana

Karen Fuhrman

Considered a more advanced pose, Urdhva Dhanurasana stretches and opens the entire body, while stregthening the arms, wrists, spine, legs and abdomen. This sequence will carefully prepare you for this strong pose by opening up the shoulders and the upper back, as well as the front body.  This pose especially opens up the quadriceps and the hip flexors, easing you into the peak pose and helping it feel more joyful while you are there.
