Half Moon offers a big beautiful stretch to your side body, but it can prove to be tough to maintain stability and balance. The game-changing adjustment for this pose? Your hand placement.
Setting up your front hand at the top of your mat lays the strong foundation for Half Moon, but people often keep their hand too close to their front foot and end up toppling over. Shift your hand up a few inches forward and parallel to your standing foot, so you can lengthen completely through the spine. You'll float right up!
