Exercise of the month:

Urdhva Dhanurasana
(Wheel Pose)


  • Strengthens the shoulders & gluts. Stretches the abdomen, chest, hip flexors and wrists.
  • Stimulates the pituitary and thyroid glands.

How to do this exercise:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, back or neck problems or are pregnant)

1. Lie on your back with feet on the floor hips width apart, heels close to buttocks.

2. Place hands under shoulders with fingertips toward toes.

3. Inhale. Exhale and press the hands into the floor as you lift the pelvis off the floor. Think of expanding your chest and abdomen as you lift through your center.

5. Hold this pose from 15 seconds to 1 minute, while the breath remains calm and fluid. Let your breath be your guide as to how long to stay.
