Ustrasana is a heart opening pose which brings length across the front of the body by stretching the hip flexors (psoas), thighs, chest and neck. It will also strengthen your glutes and back muscles. Avoid practicing Ustrasana if you have a neck, back or knee injury, as well as during pregnancy. If you struggle with insomnia, back bends are best practiced in the morning.
Deepen your practice, explore a new style, target your core, stretch away your stress or enrich the mind – any time of day, as often as you like, at your pace.
