Upward Salute (Urdhva Hastasana)

Urdhva Hastasana literally means Raised Hands Pose. It looks easy but as with all asanas there’s much more to this posture under the surface. So keys get it aligned!

* Stand in Tadasana, and turn your arms outward so your palms face away from your torso.
*Inhale and sweep your arms out to the sides and up toward the ceiling bringing them together.
*Press the palms and fingers firmly together.
*Extend your elbows fully and reach up through your fingertips.

**Tip :Don’t let your lower front ribs protrude forward. It’s important your spine doesn’t over arch and flare he ribcage or tilt the pelvis down. Bring your front ribs down (toward your pelvis) and tuck your tailbone under and finally focus on lengthening the spine.
