Bow Pose



Bow Pose or Dhanurasana Pose is considered by most to be a fairly advanced backbend.


The pose is called Bow Pose because it resembles an archers bow. If the pose is deep enough it can also resemble a tear drop.


This pose should be practiced with caution, especially for beginners. Beginners may find it difficult to lift off the ground, in which case a blanket under the thighs may help. Going deep into the pose isn’t required and shouldn’t be forced.


Tip: Pose not suggested for anyone with high or low blood pressure.



Bow Pose Benefits:


  • Opens Chest and Shoulders

  • Helps to Strengthen the Back Muscles

  • Beneficial For Developing Good Posture

  • Good Stretch For Hip Flexors

  • Allows Lungs to Expand More Fully
