Anahatasana / Heart Melting Pose


Anahatasana / heart melting pose / puppy pose is a wonderful way to open the chest and gently lengthen the upper and even lower back. With the triceps on two blocks and the hands in prayer above the head, the stretch is intensified, creating more space for your chest to melt below the height of your arms. It’s also a helpful warm-up (and counter pose) for poses with overhead arms, including handstand, forearm stand and wheel pose.
