Brief alignment: Start from a low lunge with the right knee bent. Drop the left knee to the floor. Revolve the torso to the right as you thread the left arm under the right knee crease to clasp the right hand from above. Deepen the twist and lift you gaze up to the sky.
Benefits: Opens the psoas and hip flexor, decompresses the spine, lengthens the sides of the waist, detoxifies and allows you to experience the body as a single cohesive unit.
Contraindications: knee, hip and shoulder injury.
