Posted in Uncategorized February 4th, 2008 by vera

Veras Urdhva Hastasana

Breathe in, reach for the sky! Breathe out, feel your weight sink into the earth. This pose is such a great stretch! You can also clasp your hands, palms up, as in Virasana II.  Then this is called Urdhva Baddha Hastasana (Bound Hands Up Pose).

Three Sanskrit words already!

urdhva means up, baddha means bound, and hasta means hands.
