Plow Pose is an inverted yoga posture that stretches the spine and shoulders while rejuvenating the nervous system. Because the pose calms and relaxes the nerves, brain, and heart, it is traditionally practiced near the end of a yoga class to help prepare for Savasana and Meditation.
It is named after the shape of an Indian plow which is used to cultivate the land. In practice, the pose’s soothing aspects prepare the landscape of your mind, body and spirit for deep contemplation and renewal.
