Upward Bow or Wheel Pose

ऊर्ध्वधनुरासन - Urdhva Dhanurasana - Urdhva Dhanurasana - Upwards-facing bow - Backbend (Purva Pratana Sthiti)
Having a quite flexible back , i love to push myself a little extra each time i practice backbends . Lifting up from the floor in #urdhvadhanurasana is easier for me as compared to dropping and coming back to a standing posture. I figured it out that it needs good leg strength (the quads) to push forward into the pelvic and then stand up. . My new found goal is #dropbacks and coming back.💪 drop the fear , trust the process and get bendy 😁 #workinprogress #dropbacks #ashtangavinyasa #ajinkyameheryoga #yogamumbai #breathecontrol #movement ##yogalove #yogapants #yogajourney #fitness #selfmotivation #love ❤💫💪
Yoga is a process of moving from the known to the unknown, from the front of the brain into the back of the brain, from the front of your body into the back of your body. Your back is unknown territory and maybe that is part of the reason that bending over backwards seems frightening and extreme, but it's walking into the unknown how you expand what is known and overcome fear. #practiceandalliscoming #urdhvadhanurasana 📷@valentinavenci

How can I go forward when I don’t know which way I’m facing? - John Lennon . I’ve been wondering that myself lately... . . . . . . #urdhvadhanurasana #flexible #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogalife #yogainspiration #onebreathatatime #loveandalliscoming #yogafit #fitspo #motivation #acrobatics #yogagirl #ibendsoidontbreak #yogachallenge #quotes #mondaymood #moodoftheday
#kaizenyogacues #yogatip : swipe to follow entry and exit progression for #urdhvadhanurasana #wheelpose Wheel has a lot of different pieces at work. As such its important to break it down into digestible parts. Each of these cards can be a stand-alone drill. 1. For eample, card one we can have students practice the rotations 5 times with the breath before adding weight. 2. Students must learn how to access their lower body (stronger muscles) before calling up the upper body. Once there, then add lifting only to the top of the head to check if students are ready to move on. Top of head to back of shoulders 5 times. 3. More extension!!!! Students typically will come up on the toes and neglect to straighten arms. Cue the heels of feet and hands to recruit more strength to extend! 4. In the manner you go in, so must you come out. My teacher drilled this into us. It's important students come DOWN rather than pushing forward into the knees. Hopefully students have already practiced coming off the head onto the shoulders (card 2) with bent elbows. Bents elbows are key! 5. We've arrived! Check that neither elbows nor knees have splayed pushing pressure on the joints. If so, work to progression where needed! _________________________________ Check out www.kaizenkorea.com (link in bio) for info on upcoming classes and workshops around the world!
