pashchima namaskarasana
How to do it:

1. Ensuring you have a nice long spine, bring your arms behind you. Bend the elbows and slowly start to rotate your wrists as you bring your palm togethers (modification: you may grab opposite elbows or place your palms flat on your back, one on top of each other)
2. Keep your collarbones broad, spine long and breath steady.

Stay for 5-10 breathes, then come out slightly.


  • Strengthens the wrists and forearms
  • Stretches elbows and shoulders
  • Expands the chest, allowing for deeper breath
