8 DE­SCENDED FE­MUR FOLD

Yoga Journal - - HOME PRACTICE -

Come back to Moun­tain Pose. Take your hands to your hips, shift­ing your weight into your left leg. Draw your right fe­mur (up­per leg bone) far­ther up into your hip socket. Your right leg re­mains straight, the foot lift­ing a few inches off the ground, in line with your stand­ing leg. Main­tain that lift, and hinge at your hips, com­ing to­ward a pike po­si­tion (pic­tured). Draw your core in and up, length­en­ing your spine. For an ad­di­tional chal­lenge, ex­tend your arms for­ward along­side your ears. Stay for a few rounds of breath, then lift up, and re­peat on the other side.
