A Yoga Pose for the Blues by Dr. Weil

If you experience headaches, fatigue or mild depression, this yoga pose could help. The wide-legged forward bend, also known as Prasarita Padottanasana I (meaning “stretched out,” or “with outstretched limbs”), reputedly has many benefits, including therapeutic use for headache, lack of energy and poor mood. When done with proper form for the recommended amount of time, this pose can:

•Strengthen and stretch the legs and the spine

•Tone the abdominal organs

•Calm the mind

•Relieve mild backache
