Parighasana (Gate Pose)


(pah-rig-HAHS-ah-na)

Level:

  • Beginner

Chakra:

    

Benefits: This beautiful pose helps to stretch and elongate the rib (intercostal) muscles.  Long muscles help to breathe. This pose also helps to develop core strength and balance. 

How it's done:

  • Start with your knees on the floor and your body tall.  
  • Take your right leg and extend it out to the side with the foot on the floor pointing forward. 
  • Make sure that the left knee is directly underneath your hip.  
  • Extend your left arm out to the side, and reach for the sky.  Elongate your torso and feel the stretch in the muscles of your side.
  • Place your right hand on your thigh or calf or floor as you are able.
