Looking for some foundation? Go Dangling! The Dangling pose is a beautiful grounding pose, while working on your spine and lower back. A perfect pose for some true connection, stillness and relaxation.

When?

If you are suffering from anxiety or stress then this is a great pose to do, because it releases the upper body, head and shoulders. It is an inversion, so we are relaxing the heart and strengthening our blood vessels, this can help to prevent heart and brain stroke. Focusing on letting it all go by hanging upside down will help you to find the stillness your body and mind needs. Also, this pose can help you to get rid of lower back trouble. Having your period and suffering from cramps? The Dangling will help to relief this nagging pain.

How?

The Dangling is probably the easiest pose to come into. You simply stand up with the feed hip-width apart, you may bend your knees and you slowly fold forward. Hold your opposite elbows with the hands and relax. Stay in the pose for 2 to 3 minutes and to come out you bend your knees a little bit more, release your hands to the ground and slowly, vertebrae by vertebrae, you roll up to standing.
