Extended Side Angle Pose: How-to, Tips, Benefits

In our beginner yoga pose series, Michael Taylor from Strala Yoga in New York City, demonstrates and gives us the scoop on Extended Side Angle Pose.

How-to: From a low lunge, roll your back heel to the ground, bring your fingers to the ground inside your front heel, and reach your other arm straight past your ear. Bring your shoulders, body, and legs all in one line.

Tips: Keeping your lower ribs long rather than collapsing over your front leg is easier if you start by resting your front forearm on your thigh.

Benefits: Strengthens thighs, opens hips.
