Yoga Poses For July Fourth

4 Festive Poses to Celebrate the Fourth

More commonly called Head to Knee Pose, having one leg straight and the other knee bent resembles a flag, which is why children often appropriately call this forward bend variation Flag Pose. Here are details on how to get the most out of this hamstring and hip stretch.

Tittibhasana: Firefly Pose

This challenging arm balance not only requires a strong upper body, but flexible hamstrings as well. I know it looks pretty tricky but here are detailed instructions on how to get into this advanced pose.

Agnistambhasana: Fire Log Pose

This Pigeon variation sometimes called Double Pigeon is one of the best poses you can do for tight hips and a tense lower back. Keeping your spine upright is probably enough if you suffer from extremely tight hips, but check out these tips if want to deepen this stretch.

Garudasana: Eagle Pose
