Standing Bow Pull Pose
Like camel posture, standing bow posture seems to exist on the extremes of Bikram practitioners – for some being their favourite posture and for others being their most loathed. Love it or hate it, this posture is a perfect example of the “tourniquet” effect in Bikram yoga, because it transfers circulation from one side of the body to the other and then equalizes it. Standing bow posture is a very comprehensive posture, improving the flexibility and strength of most of the body’s muscles.
