Standing Forward Bend


Uttanasana (from the Sanskrit uttana:' intense stretch', and asana: 'posture') is a standing, forward bending posture that is appropriate to all levels of practice. It is an important posture, that stretches and lengthens the entire back of the body, especially the back of the legs.
