#12 Ankles Grab
The flexibility required to do this yoga pose is tremendous. It takes many steps to get this further back, with each step building up to further deepen the back bend. This is an advanced pose and is not recommended for those that are just beginning yoga. The ankles grab is a great stretch for the lower abdomen, the shoulders, and neck area as well. To achieve the full ankles grab, one can start off with the bridge and work towards bringing legs and arms closer until the hands are able to grab the ankles. To come out of the pose, experts can simply release and rise up.
