Favorite YOGA CHALLENGE: Twisting Extended Side Angle

Remember the YOGA CHALLENGE called Twisting Extended Side Angle? I love this pose because it makes me feel strong and dainty at the same time.

FitSugar user lissagarden sent in a picture of herself doing this pose and it's my favorite. Doesn't she look powerful yet graceful? All that with a smile too. I also noticed that she's using a Yogitoes yoga towel on her black mat to prevent her from slipping. She is one serious yogi.

Don't forget about the newest YOGA CHALLENGE called Double Arm Headstand.


Get a friend to snap a picture of you in the pose. Then go to the YOGA CHALLENGE group. If you aren't already a member, click on the word "Subscribe" on the left-hand side under the black & white photo.

If you're not sure how to post your picture to the group, check out this explanation.

My favorite Double Arm Headstand will be posted right here on FitSugar just like this one.

Have fun!

hey beaner-- I have a great deal of experience with these. I own 3. I don't like how they shrink- and become smaller that my sticky mat, I also have found I get elbows get roughed up from the pressure of the little "nubbles" on the bottom of the towel. I LOVE a "nubbie-less" mat from Manduka. They are longer (3 sizes) it is also microfiber so it dries fast. I think it's called "lumi towel" by manduka. not as many colors though.
