This standing pose flow has a focus on spinal rotation and hip flexion (with a good amount of hamstring stretching included as well!) . It also includes one of my favorite transitions: twisting half moon to hovering twisting big toe & back again. It’s very fun to do (in my weird book of what makes a transition fun, that is 😉), but maintaining balance throughout is definitely tough for me. . Start in a high lunge with your hands on the floor or blocks. (I, as you might imagine, prefer the latter option here!) . In a bit of a brain trick, try to straighten your front knee *as* you bend your back knee simultaneously (hamstring stretch on front leg & quad work on back leg 👍🏽), and then straighten your back knee as you bend your front. Cycle back & forth several times dynamically. . Then find a revolved triangle pose (parivrtta trikonasana) and notice what you feel through your lateral hip & thigh of your front leg. . Does what you feel change as you step up into revolved half moon, bearing more weight in that front leg? . And then what changes as you rotate all the way around and transition into a hovering twisting big toe pose? Which leg feels a stretch in *this* position? . Attempt to reverse these steps with as much control & focus as you can until you find yourself back in your hands-down lunge. . Then try the other side and notice any differences between them. If you give this sequence (or any part of it) a try, let me know how it goes for you! 💙 . . . . . #hamstrings #revolvedtriangle #lunge #revolvedhalfmoon @jenni_rawlings jenni_rawlings Jenni Rawlings
