Yoga At Home: Issue 53

Wide Angle Seated Forward Bend (Upavistha Konasana)

Upavistha Konasana stretches the hamstrings and adductor muscles, whilst strengthening the spine. It is a calming posture that may be enjoyed for a slightly longer hold. If you have lower back pain, use additional support such as a folded blanket to sit on. If pain persists avoid this posture. Avoid the pose if you have any sacroiliac joint injuries. During pregnancy, use your hands for support in front of you so as to not rest on your belly.





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.
