Hanumanasana to Vasisthasana

Full Split to Side Plank with Bind Variation

Cristal Gould

Start in a low lunge position. Straighten the front leg, pointing the knee and toes up towards the ceiling. Curl the back toes under and lift the back off of the ground. Squeeze the inner thighs towards each other and slide the front heel forward. Keep the hips squared forward as the leg releases closer to the floor, coming into the full split. Fold the torso forward over the front leg, plant the palms and begin to lift the hips up. Sweep the front leg out to the side and reach for the big toe of that front foot, placing the body weight into the grounded hand. Stack the hips to come into the side plank and lift the top leg perpendicular to the floor, keeping the big toe bind. Pause and breath, then release the leg back to starting position, carefully retracing the steps. Come out of the split and switch sides.

Good for hamstring, inner thigh, arm and core strength and flexibility. Balance and coordination.

Give your mind, body and tired spirit the gift of silence in this moment. Turn down the volume of life and turn up your breathing. In and out. Slow. Intentional. Let your heavy eyelids close and wash the day away. Dive into silence, the water is warm and replenishing. #doitwithsoul #calm #peace #replenish #rejuvenate #relax #stopworking #recenter #connect #meditate #quiet #peace #selflove #heart #soul #mind #rest #letgo #settledown #heysoul

Day 2 of the #yogalovechallenge ! @bhost7 asked us to choose a pose that rejuvenates us after a long day. I have many! Reclined hero pose is one that I love to do after my practice. It’s a great stretch for the quadriceps, chest, and the ligaments around the knee joint. It feels great! If you have knee pain in the seated version of this pose, do not lie down!! It’s also advisable to sit on a block or a blanket if you find discomfort here. Have a beautiful day everyone and don’t forget to follow the rest of the #yogalovecrew @rivkayoga @yoga_in_nashville @bhost7 @yoga_ky and our sponsor @risebar ! 💛😊🙏 #live #love #yoga #yogini #yogakini #yogalove #yogalovecrew #yogaeverywhere #yogaeverydamnday #yogisofinstagram #yogalovechallenge #yogaeveryday #instayogi #igcontest #igchallenge #invertyoself #inversionjunkie #health #bliss #balance #backbend #blissfulyogi #rejuvenate #stretch (at Neo Vertika)
