Today I'm comin' atcha with a good ol' hip opening pose. This one is tough for a lot of people because it requires flexibility in the calves and openness in the hips, which is why I wanted to create two graphics to show both the full expression and the modified version. The only difference is bringing the heels up off the mat for the modified version.
One key thing for this pose is continuing to press into the knees with the elbows so that the hips open up and the shoulder blades draw toward one another. Avoid, if you can, letting your upper back round. Aim for 7 - 10 breaths and then rest in child's pose.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes for you!
