US­TRASANA WITH A BLOCK AT YOUR FEET

Yoga Journal - - Practice Well -

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.
