Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana) (oot-tan-AHS-anna) *I LOVE this pose for when I just need to release my troubles and tensions. Letting me torso hang heavy (and even swaying from left to right) can melt my stresses away! Benefits: -Calms the brain and helps relieve stress -Stimulates the liver and kidneys -Stretches the hamstrings, calves, and hips -Strengthens the thighs and knees -Reduces fatigue and anxiety -Relieves headache and insomnia -Therapeutic for asthma, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis
