Strike a Yoga Pose: Extended Side Angle

There's nothing like getting a good stretch for the sides of your belly. Extended Side Angle pose is great for that, plus it really opens your hips and works the quad of your bent knee.

  • Begin in Downward Facing Dog pose. Step your right foot forward between your hands, and rise up into Warrior 1.
  • Now open your hips, arms, and chest into Warrior 2 pose.
  • Place your right hand on the ground in front of your right foot, and extend your left arm straight up, opening through your chest. If your right hand doesn't reach the ground, you can place it on a block.
  • Stay here for 5 or more breaths, working on lowering your hips so they're parallel with your front knee - the lower you go the bigger the stretch. Don't forget to try it on the other side.
  • Hey, doesn't this look an awful lot like the latest yoga challenge, Twisting Extended Side Angle pose? Want to see what I mean,

    This is the latest Yoga Challenge. Get a friend to take your gorgeous picture, and then post it in theYOGA CHALLENGE group. If you're not sure how to post your picture to the group, check out this explanation.

    I'm so looking forward to seeing your pictures. Then I'll post my favorite one right here on FitSugar!
