Asana of the month:

Prayer Twist
Ardha Namaskar Parsvakonasana


  • Stretches the hips, back, shoulders & chest.
  • Improves Digestion & Elimination.
  • Strengthens the gluts & shoulder stabilizers.

How to do this pose:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, neck problems or are pregnant)

1. Stand with your spine lengthened and your shoulders relaxed.

2. Inhale & step your right foot forward and bend your right knee as you reach the arms overhead. Slide the shoulders downward towards your hips.

3. Allow the left leg to straighten and with your left heel lifted off the floor and your feet parallel, lengthen your left leg all the way through the left heel. Breathe each breath in through the nose and visualize the breath traveling all through the left hip and out through the heel.

4. Draw your hands together, then in front of your heart. Continue to lengthen through the spine.

5. Gently rotate to the right, from the pelvis through the top of your head. Bring the left elbow to the outside of the right thigh and press elbow gently into the thigh as you continue to lengthen through the spine and rotate.

6. When you are ready to come out of this pose, gently lift the torso up to center. Gently switch sides.
