Bow pose

Today’s yoga pose in Healthista’s 30 day yoga challenge with Sarah Malcolm is bow pose.

Bow pose is the next step in this sequence, going off of day 22s locust pose. This pose has this name because when done properly, the body should resemble an archer’s bow.

Sarah recommends doing a couple of sun salutations or cat-cow poses before embarking on bow pose so we can prep the spine properly.

Make sure to take your time with this pose to keep your spine in proper position, saving it from any damage.

Our 30 day yoga challenge

Each day you will be learning a new aspect to the practice, so in a month you will have learned the basic yoga poses in depth and participate in classes or do a proper sequence yourself.

Shockingly to most people, yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy!  Our 30 day challenge will give you the skills to become a true yogi.
