Benefits of Paschimottanasana is that it stretches the lower back, hamstrings and hips. Massages and tones the abdominal and pelvic organs as well as tones the shoulders.
Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend Yoga Pose) is a seated pose. Begin with sitting with legs stretched out in front of you, keep the spine erect and toes flexed toward you. Raise both arms above your head and stretch up. Bend forward from the hip joints, chin moving toward the toes. Keep the spine erect focusing on moving forwards towards the toes. Place your hands on your legs, wherever they reach, without forcing. Lift your head slightly and lengthen your spine, gently move the navel towards the knees. Drop your head down and breathe for some time. Stretch the arms out in front of you. Come back to the sitting position and lower the arms.
