Parighasana or Gate

Begin kneeling. Consider using a block or blanket under your left knee.

Stretch the right leg out to the side (foot can point or be flexed).IMG_3944 Inhale and raise the arms to shoulder height

This pose is a great pre-cursor to Triangle. So as in Triangle stretch over to the right as far as you can and wherever your hand lands is the perfect place for you! Some stretchy folks will be able to bind their peace fingers around the big toe but be alert that you do not want to fold forwards this a lateral (side) stretch.

Hold here for at least 5 deep breaths, enjoying the stretch primarily in side body.

Repeat on the other side.

Thanks to Maria, you look amazing and strong in this pose .
