Posted on July 30 2019

Pronunciation: (OORD-vah Mook-ha shvan-AHS-ah-nuh)


Also called:

  • Urdhva Mukha Svanasana



  • Beginner





Benefits: This heart opener provides a great stretch to the chest and shoulders; the mild backbend helps stretch the abdomen and increase flexibility in the back. 

How it's done:

  • Lie on your stomach.
  • Place hands next to your shoulders.
  • On an inhalation, roll the shoulders back and down and straighten your arms as much as you can without straining your lower back.
  • Lift your thighs off of the ground by pushing your pelvis forward
  • Hold the pose for 15 to 30 seconds before releasing back to the floor.
