YOGA CHALLENGE: Twisting Extended Side Angle

Here's the next yoga challenge for you to try, practice then conquer.

Be sure to get a friend to snap a picture of you doing it. Then go to the YOGA CHALLENGE group. If you're not sure how to post your picture to the group, check out this explanation.

Now onto the challenge. This pose works your quads, your hips, and is a great shoulder opener.

  • Begin in Warrior 2 with the right knee bent.
  • Drop your right forearm so it's resting on your right thigh.
  • Then reach your left arm around your lower back. If you can, wrap your fingers around the front of your right inner thigh.
  • Stay for 5 or more breaths and then try the other side.

Have fun and I can't wait to see your pics!
