Events include an air show, a horse show, celebrity appearances, and much more. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Common mistakes in Upavistha Konasana B

This is one of my favorite (unexpected) poses to pop into a fun vinyasa flow. I like to come out of it by crossing the ankles out in front and then rocking forward and jumping back into chaturanga.

The thing about this pose, however, is that I find myself teetering precariously (and often tipping over, who am I kidding) so I wanted to go over some pointers in case anyone else was dealing with the same thing. The biggest tip I can give with this pose is to focus on keeping the chest open by drawing the shoulder blades toward one another. This helps to bring everything into alignment, and then on an exhale, focus relaxing the shoulders away from the ears.

If the flexibility isn’t there yet in the back of the legs, I would suggest bending the knees and keeping the shins parallel with the ground and then focus on getting the rest of the pose in alignment.

Staff pose (dandasana)

NOTE: ENGAGE YOUR LEGS MUSCLES AND PULL UP THE KNEE CAPS, SO THAT YOUR HILLS WILL NOT TOUCH THE FLOOR, LEAVING AT LEAST 1 INCH OF SPACE WITH THE MAT! STRETCH YOUR FEET. SO THAT YOUR HILLS POINT OUT. THIS WILL REALIGNED YOUR ENTIRE BONE STRUCTURE OF YOUR LEGS, BONES, AND CARTILAGES AND MUSCLES!

Staff pose (dandasana), is a pose you should add to your practice if you’d like to improve posture. It also strengthens the back muscles and stretches the chest. It doesn’t look very challenging, but you’ll find that once you’re in it, it’s more work than you thought. I mean, how often do we sit up straight like that with our legs out? If you’ve got really tight hamstrings and your legs don’t extent straight, try sitting on a rolled up blanket or a couple books. Also, if you find this really difficult, try sitting against a wall until you can sit comfortably away from it. Feel free to ask question questions below in the comments.
