Double Angle Pose



  • Begin standing upright with the feet together and the arms at the sides.
  • Take the arms behind the body, clasping the fingers together.*  The hands should rest on the buttocks.  This is the starting position.
  • On an inhalation grow the spine long and lift the hands off the buttocks as far as possible.
  • On the exhalation bend from the hips keeping the back straight coming working toward a 90 degree angle if possible.
  • The arms should also be at a 90 degree angle. This is the final position.
  • On an inhalation, raise the torso upward, keeping the back straight.
  • Exhale the arms down toward the buttocks and release the hands to the side.
  • Repeat 5-10 times.

Note:  *A towel or sock may be used to create space between the shoulder blades.
