Swaying while standing pose

Utthita Lolasana

  • Stand with the feet about one metre apart.
  • Raise the arms above the head and keep the arms straight.
  • Bend the wrists encouraging them to be limp with the fingers pointing forward.
  • Moving from the hips swing the torso down forward allowing the arms and head to sway through the legs.
  • After this initial swing, allow the body to rock gently and spontaneously a few times until it naturally stills.
  • Hang forward and be tension-free, like a rag doll.
  • Engage the core muscles and carefully raise the torso back upright with the arms above the head.
  • Lower the arms beside the body and relax.
  • Practice up to 5 rounds.
