Forward bends are calming to the nervous system. They quieten the adrenal glands and have an overall mellowing effect.
And like all asana sessions, you will also find that they are working on different parts of your body, different joints: your hips, your knees, your feet, and your shoulders.
Forward bends should be practised at least once a week, and then anytime you are feeling hot, tired, have a headache, or are just overwhelmed.
