Yoga Lessons for the Overweight : Forward Bend Yoga Poses for the Overweight


You may need a break right now, so forward
bend is a great time for a break. Have the back of your chair facing you so that the
thighs are almost near the chair. Place a forearm down, place another forearm down.
Just walk your feet a little bit back and let the knees be soft. Bring your forehead
to rest on your forearms. Release energy in your third eye, which is right in between
the eyebrows. Let that spot really sink into the arms, rest, feel the weight of your head,
take several breaths in here. To come out, lift up the head, bring the hands and push
them into that chair so the chair is steadying you. Walk yourself back and then standing
back in mountain pose.
