Lateral Supine Kneeling Vault (recalls the sacred geometry of an Arc: side elongation, shoulder opening, knee stretching and toning, and balancing)
Brief alignment: Start seated with top of foot pressing into opposite groin. Tilt to the side onto knee and plant the other foot into the floor with knee tracking over ankle. Lift into a side plank-arc while anchoring same knee and elbow in the floor and binding arms behind neck.
Benefits: Lateral Supine Kneeling Vault tones the oblique abdominal musculature, elongates the intercostal muscles, opens up the thorax while stretching the shoulders, knee joints and testing one’s balance in a state of flux.
Contraindications: Do not attempt this pose if you have shoulder or knee injury.
