Plough

The shoulder stand leads into the plough, a position in which your feet touch the floor behind your head to create a powerful forward bending of the spine. The plough increases overall flexibility, but it is particularly effective for relieving tension in the upper back and shoulders. As in the shoulder stand, the chin rests on the neck and massages the thyroid

1. Supporting your back, inhale deeply, and then exhale as you lower your legs.

2. When your feet touch the ground, lay your arms on the floor with the palms down. Hold for 30 seconds.  Slowly roll out of the position.
