I LOVE this pose. It's perfect to do alone, at the start of a yoga practice or for relaxation during practice.
Personally, I enjoy closing my eyes and focusing on the spot between my eyebrows (the third eye), helping me to focus my mind and go inside.
Relaxing; relieving stress
Releases tension in the back, neck & shoulders
Stretches ankles, thighs, hips and spine
Press sit bones towards the heels, whilst trying to lengthen the spine all the way to the head, whilst relaxing the neck.
I love to strategically place my hands across clients' back to help deepen the pose and its benefits.
