Master Class Hot Wheel

Featured Issue: September 2010

Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose) stimulates the nervous system and opens the heart, and can leave you glowing with energy and vitality. It can also be used for gaining clarity and focus. In this video sequence, created for the September issue by Natasha Rizopoulos, learn how to apply Patanjali's wisdom of "effort toward steadiness of mind" as you execute preparatory poses like Downward-Facing Dog, Handstand, King Arthur's Pose, and Bridge Pose, on your way to the ultimate backbend.

The exercise instructions and advice presented in this video are designed for people who are in good health and physically fit. They are not intended to substitute for medical counseling. The creators, producers, participants, and distributors of Yoga Journal disclaim any liability for loss or injury in connection with the exercises shown or the instruction and advice expressed.
