Want to unwind, focus and maybe even lose weight? Try the yoga pose known as the "Seated Forward Bend." According to traditional text, the Seated Forward Bend (the pose’s original name, Paschimottanasana, literally translates as "intense stretch of the west,") can not only help a distracted mind unwind, but may also help to address obesity. The pose effectively stretches the spine, shoulders and hamstrings. Traditionally, it is also said to:
- Relieve stress and mild depression
- Stimulate the liver, kidneys, ovaries and uterus
- Improve digestion
- Help relieve the symptoms of menopause and menstrual discomfort
- Soothe headache and anxiety and reduce fatigue
