Ardha Uttanasana

Half Forward Bend is a traditional part of yoga Sun Salutations. It is designed to help people to transition from one pose to another, and is a fun opportunity to have children look around the yoga circle and smile at each other!

Children can enjoy this back-strengthening pose in our Basic Sun Salutation and Extended Sun Salutation.

Step 1
Begin in Ragdoll Pose.

Step 2
Straighten your arms and back as you lift your upper body away from your legs.

Step 3
Look forward, and hold this pose for a couple of breaths.

Step 4
Release your body back into Ragdoll Pose, or continue through your Sun Salutation.
