BOUND ARCHER POSE
Bound Archer Pose or Baddha Akarna Dhanurasana! This is a deep hamstring, groin, and hip flexor stretch. It strengthens the arms and legs, stretches the chest and opens up the heart. Breathe through this challenging pose for 3 to 5 breaths.
Here’s how to do it: Sit in dandasana, with both legs extended out in front of you. Hinge forwards, lift your right leg up to the sky as you use your hands to assist the leg up and behind your right shoulder. Interlace the hands at the base of your back. Straighten the leg, lengthen the spine, gaze forwards. Be sure to sit the tailbone all the way down to the ground staying even in the hips (not leaning over more to one side than the other). Breathe! Feel the stretch, amazing.
xx love & light!
