Urdhva Hastotanasana (Up stretched arms posture)

Stand upright with the feet together. Stretch the arms overhead and interlock the fingers, turning the palms upwards with a twist of the wrists. If due to weak wrists you find this hand positions painful, interlace the fingers with the palm pointing downwards. Breathing in, stretch up, standing high on tiptoe for six seconds. Lower the heels to the floor, exhaling.


It improves posture and balance, increases physical and mental poise, exercise the lungs, and strengthens the wrists, calves, and feet. Firms and tones the muscles of the arms, shoulders, chest, back, abdomen, hips and legs.
