seated angle

upavistha konasana


Seated angle deeply opens the hips while stretching the entire back side of the body: legs, back, and arms.

 From staff posture, spread the legs out as wide as comfortable.

 Inhale the arms up towards the ceiling, and exhale the arms forward reaching through the fingers, lowering the palms flat to the floor.

Round the spine and let the head hang forward.

 Walk the fingertips forward, gently deepening the stretch.

Breathe and hold for 3-8 breaths.

To release: slowly inhale the arms back up to the ceiling and exhale them down to your sides.

Place a blanket under the hips.
