Wind Relieving Position
The wind relieving pose in yoga stretches your back all the way from your lumbar spine up your neck. It is called the wind relieving pose because it can expel excess gas from the body.
• To begin, lie face up on the floor
• Extend both legs straight and point your toes at the ceiling
• Bend your left knee in toward your chest, clasp your hands below the knee and bring your forehead to your knee by raising your chest off the floor
• Lower back down and repeat by raising your right knee
Hold stretch for 30-50 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side, twice daily
