- Reverse Plank
- Eastern Intense Stretch Pose
- Inclined Plane Pose
Benefits: This is a whole body stretch - legs, chest, throat, and arms. It particularly stretches the muscles used in Chaturanga.
How it's done:
- Start in a seated position with your back straight, and with your feet stretched out in front of you.
- Place your hands behind your hips with your fingertips pointed towards your toes. (Our model in the photograph is demonstrating a modification. Fingers pointed to your toes is preferred.)
- On an inhale, lift your hips high, while pressing your feet into the floor.
The gifted Ester Ekhart demonstrates how to come into this pose.
