Rotated Side Angle

All the muscles along your spine get a big, deep twist in Rotated Side Angle:

  • After completing Extended Side Angle on both sides, move through a vinyasa (Four-Limbed Staff to Up Dog to Down Dog).
  • Once you're in Down Dog, step your right foot forward between your hands. Lift your arms up and press your palms together, coming into Warrior 1.
  • Now lower your elbows toward your chest, and rotate your torso to the right, crossing your left elbow over your right thigh. Actively press your left triceps into your right quad to lift your chest as high as you can. Gaze over your right shoulder, and hold for five breaths.
  • Release your hands to the mat, step your right foot back, and come back into Down Dog. Then repeat this pose on the left side.
