Awake & Evolve: Cycle 3 – Standing Forward Bend Pose Focus

The third cycle of Awake & Evolve workouts builds strength and endurance in the lower body, with brief meditations to calm the mind and relieve stress.

Standing Forward Bend

Start with the feet hip distance apart and slowly bend over, bringing the hands down toward the floor. Keep a small bend in the knees if the hamstrings are tight. Let your head hang, completely relaxed, and close your eyes. Grab opposite elbows to go deeper in the pose. Fold over and hold the pose for 1 minute. Repeat as needed.
