This therapeutic yoga posture will stretch your hamstrings, tone your upper back, and rejuvenate and lengthen your entire spine.

Step By Step:
Begin in Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend) with your feet either together or hip-width distance apart. Place your fingertips on the floor next to your feet. You can also place your palms to your shins with your fingers pointed straight down if that helps you find more length in your spine. As you inhale, straighten your arms and lift your chest away from your thighs. Lengthen your spine and engage your upper back muscles slightly. Look slightly forward without compressing your neck. Keep your core strong and avoid rounding your spine. You can bend your knees if that helps you find more length. As you exhale, release back into Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend).
