Extended Side Angle
Extended Side Angle opens up your hips and quads, while stretching the sides of your torso:
- Once you've moved through both sides of Open Triangle, move through a vinyasa (Four-Limbed Staff to Up Dog to Down Dog).
- From Down Dog, step your right foot forward between your hands, and rise up into Warrior 1. Open your hips, arms, and chest into Warrior 2.
- Place your right hand on the ground behind your right foot (on the little toe side). Extend your left arm straight up, turning your palm down so your thumb is pointing behind you.
- Stay here for five breaths. Then move through a vinyasa (Four-Limbed Staff to Up Dog to Down Dog) before repeating this pose on the other side.
