The standing bow pose in yoga is called 'vrikshasana' or the tree pose. It reminds us of a tree that is stable, calm and earthy.

Its benefits are:

1. Teaches humility and gratitude.

2. Improves the strength and balance of the feet.

3. Builds confidence in facing problems in a calm manner.

4. Calms the nervous system.

Do not bow if you have low blood pressure, a hernia, an injury in the lower back, head, or migraine, and recent abdominal surgery. Bow pose strengthens the spine and hamstrings, preventing or reducing lower back pain and injury.
