Upward Salute (Urdvha Hastasana)




Stretches the belly
Improves digestion
Stretches the shoulders and armpits
Helps relieve mild anxiety

*Should not be practiced if you suffer from neck or shoulder pain

From tadasana turn the palms out, inhale, and raise the arms to the sky.  Extend the elbows fully.  Keep the arms strong and energised, reaching through the pinkies.  Avoid hunching by dropping the shoulders down and finding space between the shoulders and the ear lobes.  If it's comfortable take the head back and look towards the thumbs.
