Wide- leg forward bend
Naturopath and Founder of Yogymummy, Ankita Mahajan says, “Inversion postures have a calming effect on the mind and Wide- leg Forward Bend is just one of them. To do this, you need to stand on your yoga mat with a wide stance and do a forward bend down. You can also bend your elbows for a deeper bending. This will release your neck and head tension and make you feel lighter.”
