Urdhva Hastasana

Urdhva Hastasana is a standing pose where the arms are streched above the head.Urdhva Hastasana arises out of Tadasana. In this pose the sides of the body are full stretched and the spine lifted. By practicing the pose one feels rejuvenated and light.

How To Do

  • Stand in Tadasana. Turn your arms outward (or laterally) so your palms face away from your torso and thumbs point backward. With an inhale, sweep your arms out to the sides and up toward the ceiling.
  • Press your palms firmly together by, touching the bases of your palms first, then the palms themselves, and finally the fingers.
  • Extend your elbows fully and reach up through your pinkies so your thumbs turn slightly down toward the crown of your head. Making sure not to compress the back of your neck, tip your head back slightly and gaze at your thumbs.
  • Don't let your lower front ribs protrude forward. Bring your front ribs down (toward your pelvis) and in (toward your spine), and lengthen your tail bone toward the floor. Then lift your rib cage evenly away from your pelvis to stretch the circumference of your belly. Hold for a few breaths.
  • Exhale and, as you sweep your arms out to the sides, tip your torso forward from the hip joints to fold into Uttanasana
