Look at urdhva dhanurasana, or upward facing bow pose, in this short tutorial that will help you get the most out of the pose. Recommended props: 1 block, 1 strap

I have been doing this pose for years, but never knew about using the strap to keep the shoulders and arms in alignment. I have tight shoulders, so that is a great tip for me. This was a very helpful video. Thanks, Lakshmi!
