Urdhva mukha svanasana. This is an excellent posture to strengthen the back and open the shoulders. As with all backbends, it's important to bring awareness to the tailbone. The tailbone moves strongly in and down which protects the backbend from going into the lumbar/low back region. Also, if shoulders are tight or wrists are sore, turn the fingers out away from the body to create a bit more space.
This pose can be done with the tops of the feet on the floor as well. To get the legs working properly, practice with toes curled under.
Strengthens and opens back.
Brings elasticity to lungs due to chest expansion.
