Extended Side Angle with a Block

© Barry Stone
From Triangle Pose, bend the right knee so that it come directly over the right ankle, coming into Extended Side Angle Pose. Bring the right hand to the inside or outside of the right foot. You may also use a block or bring the right forearm to rest across the right thigh. Keep stacking the hips and opening the chest.

Hold 5 breaths and then step to the front of your mat.
