Standing Forward Bend for Women
Standing Forward Bend
Stand with your feet parallel and hip-width apart. Bend your knees deeply, and carefully fold your torso over your legs, beginning with your belly and then your middle ribs. Let your hands hang straight down.
Tip Just hang. Don't try to touch the floor. Let your legs and back release with each inhale and exhale. Bend your knees as much as necessary to rest your torso on your legs. This will take some pressure off your back to prevent overstretching and injury, and will also make the forward bend more efficient.
