Seated Forward Bend : Practice And Tone Your Thighs

Seated Forward Bend : Practice And Tone Your Thighs
How to perform Seated Forward Bend:
  • Spread your legs while sitting on the floor with your back straight (not hunched over). The right leg goes to the right and the left to the left. Spread your legs as far as you can comfortably.
  • Place your hands in front and on the floor. 
  • If you don’t need to put them on the floor for balance or comfort, rest your hands on top of your thighs.
  • Remember to do your deep, rhythmic yoga breathing through the nostrils (never through the mouth). Breathing helps you relax into the posture.
  • Flex your feet and feel the stretch on your hamstrings.
  • Point your toes and feel the pull on the front of your shins.
  • Note that your kneecaps are facing toward the ceiling. Look straight ahead.
  • Maintain the posture through as long as is comfortable for you and then pull your legs in comfortably.
Benefits:
  • Stretches lower back, hamstrings and hips.
  • Massages and tones the abdominal and pelvic organs.
  • Tones the shoulders.
  • Very effective to tone the inner thighs.
