BIRD OF PARADISE
Bird of Paradise is a great move to improve flexibility, open the hips, strengthen the legs, and stretch the groins.
A: Start with legs hip width apart, squat down low and stick your butt out. Swing the left hand behind the back, place the right hand underneath the right thigh, interlace hands as close to the base of your back as you can, you’re binded! Shift all of your weight into the left heel of the foot, tighten the core, lightly pick up the right foot & feel it become weightless.
B: Inhale, lift up the entire upper body with your weightless right foot. Left leg is locked and energized with balance. Take your shoulders back as much as possible without releasing the bind.
C: Exhale, straighten the right leg and point the toes.
xx love & light.
Yogini thought of the day: Get started today, even if you feel like you suck, HEHE. Don’t be afraid to put it out there, especially if they are good vibes, express yourself! Who cares what anyone else thinks:) No project or venture is too big or too small. Start now.
