Yoga Archer Pose
This pose is named for the archer, who draws back the bowstring with great power and then releases the arrow with perfect aim. This pose is a powerful way to stretch and open the entire front of the body.
To come into the pose, stand in Tadasana (Mountain Pose) and then step your left foot back about 3 feet, turning your heel out so your feet are parallel. Inhale and raise your arms overhead, then exhale and bend your right knee, bringing your right heel as close to your left glute as possible. Reach your arms forward, parallel to the floor, and press your palms together.
If you can maintain this position without bouncing, you can stay here for a few breaths. To come out of the pose, inhale and press into your left foot to come back to Tadasana. Then repeat the pose on the other side.
This pose is a great way to open up the hips and chest, and to improve balance. It can also help to improve focus and concentration.
