Beginner Yoga Challenge: Side Angle Pose

Performed by Marin Jayden

Benefits of the Side Angle Pose: Side angle pose stimulates the abdominal muscles and reduces constipation. Additionally, if you have a lower back ache, this pose will help.

  • Start in mountain pose.
  • Step right with your right foot and rotate it 90 degrees to the outside.
  • Rotate your left foot 15 degrees to the right.
  • Bend your right knee 90 degrees.
  • Palms up, lift your arms to their sides.
  • Bend at the torso to the right and make sure your right side faces your right thigh.
  • Stretch your left arm up as high as it can go and your right arm as low as possible.
  • Look toward the side wall.

Modifications: This pose can be strengthened if you pose with the lower arm in front of the bent knee.
