Gravity Can Be Your Friend

Standing Forward Bend

While many people fear the effects of gravity on their bodies, wise ones use it to their advantage. In Standing Forward Bend, gravity aids in lengthening your body toward the ground, thus stretching your lower back and hamstrings. In this position, gravity also assists the weight of your head to lengthen and decompress your neck. Plus, it just feels good! Bend your knees as much as you need to make this pose comfortable for you.
