Inclined Plane

Immediately after a forward bend, counter-pose the movement by stretching the spine back the other way in the Inclined Plane Position. This pose also serves to strengthen the shoulders, arms, and wrists.

1. Sit on the floor with your legs straight, feet flexed, and your hands flat on the floor behind you. Allow your head to drop back.

2. Inhale as you raise your hips. Hold the position for about 10 seconds, keeping your knees straight. Exhale as you lower your hips and bottom to the floor.
