Dhanu means a bow. Bow pose is a fantastic stretch for the spine, abdominals, hip flexors, biceps and pecs. It is an all-around, great total body-opening backbend. Be sure to engage your core muscles, encouraging the spine to bend evenly, rather than pivoting in the lower back. Regular practice will relieve lower back pain and release tension.
