The Benefits of Bow Pose
Stress got you tied up in knots? Get some help with bow pose—a posture that really rocks. The long list of benefits of bow pose include improved digestion, weight loss, strengthening the respiratory system (relieving asthma and breathing problems) and giving your spine and low back a great stretch. Kundalini yogis expand on this posture by “rocking” back and forth on the belly to unleash its full potential.
You can “put a bow” on the gift of health and well-being by doing a daily practice of bow pose. You will strengthen your core muscles (abdominals) and stretch your shoulders and chest area. Bow pose strengthens the kidneys and is helpful for constipation and diabetes. Rocking in bow pose invigorates and massages your internal organs and opens the front of your inner thighs. So don’t get “bent out of shape” when times get tough…get going with bow pose in your daily yoga practice.
