Day 9 of is Dancer or ~ this is one of my favorite poses, working as a heart opener while challenging your balance and lengthening the chest and spinal muscles (also works the hamstrings, hip flexors and shoulders!) Some key things to remember: keep the standing quad engaged to protect the hamstring and knee- trying to avoid hyperextension. If you aren’t able to reach for your back foot you can use a strap to loop around your foot or ankle. This is where having warmed up shoulders is nice! You can also find a modified version without the flipped grip here. Warrior I, Low Lunge, and Hanumanasana are all good poses to work on prior to Dancer. Making sure you switch to practice both legs!
Check in with all other hosts for their variations 💕
