Seated forward bend

These steps help you achieve this bend (illustrated in Figure 18-11).

1. Start in the seated mountain posture.

2. As you exhale, bend forward from your hips and slide your hands forward and down your legs.

3. Let your head and arms hang down and relax in the folded position for 4 to 6 breaths.

4. For a nice ending, use the seated mountain posture. Close your eyes and choose focus breathing (Chapter 5) or a relaxation technique (Chapter 4) for two to five minutes.
