One Pose Class Tutorial.
Benefits: This pose strengthens our connection with the grounding energy of the earth. With an emphasis on establishing a firm and grounded foundation in the legs while fearlessly lifting and expanding the chest. As such, it is great for integrating the upper and lower halves of the body
Contraindications (Cautions): High blood pressure, heart problems, students with shoulder problems should keep their raised arms parallel (or slightly wider than parallel) to each other. Students with neck problems should keep their head in a neutral position and not look up at the hands.
Deepen the pose: Raise arms overhead alongside the ears, bring the palms together, lift your head back and gaze upward.
Lighten the pose: 1). Do not join the palms overhead. 2). Place the hands on the hips. 3). Bend the front knee less. 4). Have the front leg straight. 5). Lift the back heel.
Counterposes: Uttanasana - Deep Forward Fold.
