7 STAND­ING KNEE-TO-CHEST VARI­A­TION

Yoga Journal - - HOME PRACTICE -

This pose will help you bal­ance in Adho Mukha Vrk­sasana (Hand­stand), be­cause it doesn’t al­low a bend in your lower back or ex­ter­nal ro­ta­tion in your hips (root causes of im­bal­ance). Start in Tadasana (Moun­tain Pose). Shift your weight to your left leg. Draw your right knee to­ward your chest, plac­ing a block be­tween your up­per thigh and rib cage. Clasp your hands around the front of your right shin to find bal­ance and length in your spine. Then re­lease your hands up along­side your ears. Hold for 10 counts, then re­peat each side 3–5 times.
