Love love this pose a lot! Especially since I haven’t been diligently going and I know I should…. I have forgotten how it feels to stretch so much. It has been helping me with my plantar fascia a lot. I admit I miss running, but this is a nice and good alternative way for me to get in my cardio and strength training workouts at the same time.
Standing head to knee pose benefits
- Standing Bow moves all the blood from one side of the body to the other, then back again.
- It develops balance, increases the size and elasticity of the rib cage, firms the abdominal wall and upper thighs.
- It improves the flexibility and strength of the lower spine.
- Standing Bow builds patience, determination and concentration.
One of my favorites only because I don’t suck at it. Compared to the standing head to knee pose, which I am
hopeless working on (like forever) , this is another full stretching pose which leaves me with such good vibes afterward. I can sleep better after every session of Bikram and am totally looking forward to tonight’s session. The Benefits of Bikram Yoga are really awesome and I am glad to have been practising it for a few years now 🙂
Wish I could practise by the beach though
It’s a good way to kickstart the weekend 🙂
