Favorite Half Bound Lotus Pose

For many of you readers, like kevindineen, spring weather is all about finally getting a chance to shed your winter gear and move freely in the sunshine.



He sent in these pictures of himself doing the yoga challenge - Standing Half Bound Lotus - after going for a run. Look at that amazing blue sky! It looks like summer there. That weather would've inspired me to move too.



I agree with you, kevindineen - this pose does feel great after a run. It really stretches out your hips and hamstrings. When you fold forward, it also stretches out your lower back.



Are you pumped for the latest yoga challenge? It's called Balancing Wide Squat. It's actually perfect for Spring because it really stretches out those poor feet that have been cramped up in clunky boots all winter.



If you are a runner or high heel wearer, you'll also love how this pose stretches out the tiny muscles in your feet that are so tight and tense.



Don't forget to snap a picture of yourself and post it in the YOGA CHALLENGE Group. Not sure how to do it? No problem. Just check out this easy explanation. Let me know what you think.
