Windshield Wiper Pose is a beginners level yoga pose and is an excellent pose for the lower back and hips and what better way to get the massage for the hips and the back while lying down on your back in supine position! Supine Windshield Wiper Pose is a great variation where one foot is placed on the floor while the other leg rests inwards flexing the hips and the lower back.

Windshield Wipers Pose

Windshield wiper pose is a favorite amongst many who practice yoga. Aside from the many benefits it provides, it is a pose that just feels good! In fact, it is an excellent pose to do every day before you even get out of bed. It stretches your back after a long night’s sleep and slowly begins to energize you and help you wake up.

Steps – Windshield Wiper Pose
  1. Begin on your back with your feet to the outside edges of your mat.
