This twisty Surya Play sequence will stretch your side body, 'wring out' your spine, elongate your quadriceps and open your hips :) Give it a try! And get creative yourself by sharing your favourite Surya Namaskar variation with us!
Parsvottanasana is a difficult pose in it's own right, and can become a serious balancing pose when the hands are off the floor and behind the back in paschima namaskarasana (reverse prayer). For this variation, belt the front thigh against the back foot
DETAIL + DEPTH Keep the legs crossed and “squozen,” as my teacher Alison West would say, and add a twist to the upper chest and spine. Use a wall to assist the twist up and away from the floor. Keep the head in line with the spine by looking.
