Wide Legged Staff ~ Upavista Konasana

Alignment

Extend the legs apart. Maintain dorsiflexion in the feet, root sitting bones down evenly and spiral inner thighs back initiating an anterior tilt in the pelvis. Tent fingertips by the sides of the waist. Press down to sit tall.

Refinement

Sit on a folded blanket or Chip block to lift the hips and create space for the low back. Either stay there or maintaining the length, begin to hinge at the hips, leading with the heart, to fold deeper into the stretch.
