Awake & Evolve: Cycle 2 – Bound Forward Bend Pose Focus

The second cycle of Awake & Evolve workouts focuses on using the breath, building upper body stamina, and fostering a habit of regular meditation.

Bound Forward Bend Pose

From a seated pose bend your right knee in as you place your right foot close to your bottom. Make sure you keep the left leg extended and engaged. Reach the left arm straight up and bring the arm back behind your back as you wrap your right arm around. Next try to reach and bind the hands together. Use your breath as you extend through the spine and sit up. With your next exhale begin to fold over into the forward bend. Stay here for 10-15 deep breaths and repeat on the opposite side.

Benefits of Bound Forward Bend Pose:

  • Stimulates digestion and massages the abdominal organs, including the liver and kidneys.
  • Stretches and opens the shoulders and spine.
