How to do Extended puppy pose – Uttana Shishosana

The extended puppy pose (uttana shishosana) is a simple beginner level yoga asana that soothes the mind and strengthens the spine.

Extended puppy pose is a similar asana to the familiar and restful child’s pose (balasana), but provides a greater stretch to the spine. This asana provides a beneficial stretch to the spine and shoulders, and offers a release to the neck. It is thought to be an excellent respite for chronic stress or tension in the shoulders and upper spine. Today in ‘Yoga and You’ Dhivya from Dhivyam Yoga shows us how to do Extended puppy pose – Uttana Shishosana.
