Home Practice – Standing pose 

Parsvakonanasa (Side angle pose) is a great pose for exploring your connection to your crown and tail and how when you bring attention here you can develop a greater capacity to lengthen the spine, ground and gain a deeper connection to your centre. Shall we try it together?

  1. Set up a chair
  2. Step forward with your right foot, right hand supporting on the chair and back foot tuned out slightly.
  3. Make sure the knee is in line with the toes and start to bring your attention to your feet.
  4. Imagine pressing down into the floor, then bring your attention to your centre and imagine that you have a string from your centre that reaches out through your crown and tail and see how this effects your standing post.
  5. You can also explore extending your left arm and allow this limb also to connect from your centre out and avoid overextending.I would love to hear what your experience is with this pose once you start to connect to your centre….feel the elongation of your spine. Let me know how you go!
