Pose to learn
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
To execute this pose lie on your back, palms facing upwards at your side with your knees bent and your feet firmly planted on the floor. If you have issues with your neck, you can use a thick towel to cushion and protect your neck. Exhale and push your pelvis upwards off the floor, while keeping your thighs parallel to the floor and firming your buttocks. Keep your shoulders on the floor with your chin slightly tilted toward your sternum. Beginners hold the pose for 30 seconds. Advanced yoga students should try to hold the pose for a full minute.
