Vibe & Flex Yoga Challenge Day 16: Upward Bow Wheel Pose

Jah Guide. Welcome to Day 16 of the Vibe & Flex Yoga Challenge. A challenge about your personal growth. Personal growth here is your mental, physical and spiritual journey to a better healthy you.

Yesterdays Forearm Plank pose made us use all of our muscles for a major stretch and a little workout.

Today’s Pose will test your ability to push yourself past where you thought you would go.
