Dhanu="bow." Begin in Bhekasana. Grasp your ankles. Then straighten the legs as far as possible, pulling your torso up into a bow.

Variation 1

Leave one leg in Bheka and bring the other into Dhanura: Frog-bow, bheka-dhanurasana.

Variation 2

PART 1: From Dhanurasana, release one foot and send that leg straight back (ekapada dhanurasana, eka="one" + pada="foot") Send the sameside arm far out forward to support the torso.

PART 2: Reach it back to grasp the raised foot.
