Seated Forward Pose

The Seated Forward Bend, also known as Paschimottanasana, is a fundamental yoga posture that invites a profound stretch and release in the back of the body. To enter this pose, begin by sitting on the floor with your legs extended straight in front of you. As you inhale, elongate your spine, lifting through the crown of your head. Upon exhaling, hinge from your hips, leading with your chest, and fold forward over your legs. The objective isn’t to touch your toes, but rather to maintain a flat back and allow the stretch to manifest naturally. Gently use your hands to hold your feet, ankles, or shins, depending on your flexibility. Keep your feet flexed, activating your leg muscles. Feel the stretch along your hamstrings, lower back, and spine. Breathe deeply and relax into the stretch, allowing the tension to dissolve with each exhalation. With time and practice, your flexibility will gradually increase. This pose enhances flexibility in the posterior chain, stimulates digestion, and calms the mind. While practicing, prioritize your body’s comfort and don’t force the stretch beyond your limits.
