Forward Bend Together

This pose starts to look complicated, but it really isn't. It's only two poses in one. Partner B helps Partner A lengthen the spine by pushing down on Partner A's hipbone. Conversely, Partner A helps Partner B lengthen the hamstrings by pushing down on Partner B's heels.

1. Partner A gets into the child's pose with arms outstretched in front (Chapter 18).

2. Partner B stands in front of Partner A. Partner A holds Partner B's ankles as Partner B assumes the downward facing dog posture (Chapter 18) over the top of Partner A, placing the hands on either side of Partner A's hips, palms facing in.

3. Partner B helps Partner A lengthen the spine, while Partner A helps Partner B lengthen the hamstrings.

4. Hold as long as is comfortable, then switch positions.
