Upavistha Konasana B - Seated Forward Bend

Seated Forward Bend – Upavistha Konasana B

I love yoga asanas, I love turning ‘inward’ and see how I am doing ‘on the inside’, but I love having fun as well. As long as I enjoy what I’m doing, I can keep on doing it. So when I teach yoga I always like to throw in some fun asanas. One I really like is Upavistha Konasana B – Seated Forward Bend. Balancing on your sit bones is the hard part in this asana. A lot of people who do this pose will roll on their back, trying to stay in. Always good for a smile.

Getting into Upavistha Konasana B – Seated Forward Bend

  • Start in sitting position, with your legs forwards
  • Bend your legs, so you can grab your toes with your thumb, index finger and middle finger. Another option is to grab hold of the outer edges of your feet
  • Engage your core, lift your heels from the floor, find your balance on your sit bones and stretch your legs. Keep your core strong ,so you want roll backwards
  • Draw your shoulder blades towards each other and open your chest. Activate your legs; pushing your heels away from you
  • Stay in the pose for half a minute. Bend your legs and slowly bring your feet back to the floor
