Upward Facing Forward Bend Pose (Urdhva Mukha Paschimottanasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Upward Facing Forward Bend Pose

Upward Facing Forward Bend Pose is an advanced seated bind that gives a deep stretch to the hamstrings while challenging the Yogi to balance on just the sit bones. This posture can help with digestion and helps to build strength all over the body while toning the abs, back, and legs.

To do Upward Facing Bend Pose, begin seated on the mat with the feet placed on the mat close to the sit bones. Next, grab the feet and pull the feet towards the shoulders, keeping the back straight, then straighten the legs and pull them in towards the torso. Try doing this against a wall until the strength is built to balance.
