Uttanasana – Standing Forward Bend

Stretch Your Body Out, increase the joy as well as the body alignment.

My second post of asanas will be Uttanasana – Intense-Powerful stretch pose.

Forward bend pose, coming after tadasana, stretches your muscles, improves your capacity to relive.

I will not explain much about the anatomical corrections or alignments that might be spread your whole weight in your both feet, straighten your back and focus on the pelvis and bend from the hip joints. But please do, because physical level is a manifested state as I understood so far.

Uttanasana is the perfect pose to articulate slowly melt away layers of resistance, being receptive to breaths to move into the parts of the body, intention to relieve. It’s not about being passive  rather it can be very active as you intentionally extend the spine, chest, neck, head with every exhalation.

Since asanas originally derived positions  to “be steady and comfortable, relaxing into the infinite” (Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra),  there is no hurry and nothing to be achieved rather than awareness, and attention.  May all connect with the influx of powerful liberating force, taste the receiving love, and feel the joy.
