Beginner Yoga Challenge: Rotated Side Angle Pose
Performed by Marin Jayden
Benefits of the Rotated Side Angle Pose: The twisting lunge creates stability throughout the entire body. By twisting your torso, it improves digestion and removes toxins as well.
- Stand up straight and lunge forward with your left leg.
- Rotate your left foot 90 degrees and your right foot about 15 degrees to the left.
- Bend your left knee to 90 degrees. Reach your right arm up to the sky and the left down to the floor behind your knee.
Modifications: For greater balance, practice this pose facing a wall. The big toe of your front foot and your fingertips should touch the wall. When you feel balanced, begin the twist portion of the pose.
