Forward Bend Yoga poses are known for directing yogis away from their exterior and towards their inner world. Forward bending yoga poses fold the front of the body while opening the entire backside at once. The focus of the yogi is mostly centered on the front torso. Bending yoga poses build strength and flexibility in the spine.

Other benefits of bending yoga poses include soothing the nervous system by increasing circulation, stimulating internal organs, lowering body temperature, and calming the mind. Forward Bend Yoga Poses include the Child’s Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Extended Puppy Pose, and Pyramid Pose.
