Benefits
Strengthens your wrists, arms, and shoulders; opens your psoas muscles; enhances breathing by opening your chest and stretching your sides.

Stay Safe
Move mindfully with curiosity—this may be the wildest thing we can do in yoga and in life. Distribute your effort evenly through all four limbs. Keep your top arm straight—do not bend the elbow or wrist—allowing it to lift some of the weight off the lower arm. Firmly tuck your shoulder blades into your back to help you avoid sinking into the shoulder; be spacious in the joint, enabling the pose to be supportive and safe. Breathe consciously—not too loudly, not too softly. Let every breath be a conversation between the earth and the sky.
