Uttanasana

Uttanasana ( Forward Fold). In downward facing dog you worked on keeping your spine long feeling the lower back open and experienced the connection between your upper and lower body as you take your gaze to your upper thigh in the pose. Now walk your hands back to your feet. Keep a slight bend in your knees in the begining and feel! experience the shift or sliding of your muscles in your upper back, lower back, hamstrings and quads. Keep your fngertips pressed firmly into your mat. Keep your hips above your ankles, stay firm and connected.To experience a deeper Uttanasa, straighten your knees, lift your knee caps without locking them. If your fingertips can no longer reach your mat take your hands to your shins. FEEL UTTANASANA!! Keep your neck long, gaze bewtween your shins, lift your toes to stabiilize your ankles: Use these finer cues to access parts of the Asana which best benefit your body. Breathe
