Continuing with our yoga week! It’s my favorite yoga pose actually. The pose itself feels like you’re opening up completely to the world around you! It’s not just about holding a pose and making it look good- it increases your energy level + builds your confidence. It’s like an instant energy switch!
Physically, it strengthens your core and upper body.
Characteristics associated with this pose: open, adventurous, bold.
Here’s how you do the rockstar:
Position A: start at downward dog split with your left leg, bend your leg towards the right. Keep a strong balance here for a second.
Position B: keep your right leg firmly balanced to the floor as you curve your body backwards and plant your left foot to the floor. Your right palm is firmly planted into the floor for balance and left hand is reaching far back behind you! Hips up to the sky. Pose, hold!
Do 30 to 60 seconds per side.
