A centerpiece of many flows/vinyasas and Sun Salutations. The Standing Forward Fold Pose connects to Mountain Pose. You will usually land in a forward fold on an exhale from a Half-way Lift Pose. Let your head hang heavy and relax your back muscles. Forward Fold is a great stretch for your hamstrings and your back.
Seated Forward Fold
Like it's cousin the Standing Forward Fold, this yoga pose is also a great leg and back stretch. This pose is practice usually once the body is warmed up and loose in the later parts of a yoga class. This pose has many layers, that like an onion can be worked through.
