USTRASANA WITH A BLOCK AT YOUR FEET
Stabilize your hips and lower spine with this variation. Place a block on its middle setting between your feet, squeezing it between your ankles to activate your legs and hips, and help bring additional stability to the pose. Curl your toes under and press into the balls of your feet, engaging the backs of your legs and buttocks while lifting your sides and the backs of your lower ribs. Inhale and move your shoulder blades deep into your upper back as you reach for your heels. Exhale. Inhale to lift your upper back and chest even further. Come out of the pose on an inhale.
