Standing Bow Pulling Pose - Dandayamana Danurasana

Dec, 11, 2013

This is the second posture in our series of one-legged balancing asanas.  This is the only posture that moves all the blood from one side of the body to the other and then back again.  It uses compression and extension and then release to systematically bring fresh blood and oxygen to all the organs and glands.  It develops balance, increases the size and elasticity of the rib cage, firms the abdominal wall and upper thigh, tightens upper arms, hips and buttocks and improves the flexibility and strength of the lower spine.  Mentally, Standing Bow builds patience, determination and concentration.

I love the atmosphere and that the emphasis is health and doing what is right for you and your body and taking care of yourself. Just like a "hug." WIth yoga I have been able to stay active in all different sports. The most important part of the studio is the staff. Everyone makes you feel welcome and important. Always willing and eager to meet you where you are and help with any individual needs or struggles.
