Peak Pose: Bow with Rachel Scott
What You'll Experience
Our peak pose challenges are meant to be flexible, allowing you to do each class when it suits you and feels right. For example, you can do classes back-to-back on the same day or leave two or three days in between. It's totally up to you. You won't be doing the peak pose until the final class.

Bow pose (dhanurasana) is a deep, satisfying backbend the involves your entire body. The strength that is required to stabilize, lift and lengthen is a key aspect of this posture, while the flexibility allows you to more easily move into the backbend without compromising your back. Rachel takes time with each element, ensuring that you have established them fully before attempting a series of gradually deepening backbends that lead to the peak pose.
It's important to understand how to properly engage your core before moving into backbends. If you are uncertain how to do this, go to our program Establish Your Core Stability and Strength and do at least the first three classes before moving onto this peak pose challenge.
