Watch the video and you’ll find some ideas to practice to help you get into today’s pose. Make sure you don’t just warm up the hips, but also stretch the thighs and practice a few half Lotuses before. I’m demoing a regular ‘head to ankle’ as well as a variation where the back leg is in Half Lotus (keep the hands on the floor at all times to balance easier) and where you bend it in, bringing the heel towards the butt (great stretch). Undo the Half Lotus if it’s too much and try to ‘roll’ onto your side, like I’d demoing, with the leg extended out. If you go for the full pose, fold that leg in first, then get the other behind the head and roll carefully to the side. Push gently the kneecap away, with your arms (notice how I’m doing it in the video at the very end), to straighten the back, and try to drop the heel behind the head towards the floor. Imagine a straight line from the crown to that lower kneecap. Go wherever it feels ok, be safe and have a good time practicing!!For translation in several languages, follow these accounts daily!
