Standing Bow Pulling Pose is beautiful and graceful and helps develop concentration, determination, and patience. Additionally Standing Bow improves flexibility and strength in the spine, strengthens every muscle, relieves lower back pain, improves function of the cardiovascular system, flushes kidneys, and revitalizes the endocrine system, improves muscle fatigue, lethargy, and stimulates the nervous system. It is a perfect example of the tourniquet effect in yoga, because it pushes the blood to one side of the body. As the posture is held, the blood is equalized. As the posture is released, fresh blood is circulated to each internal organ, gland, and cell.
