Weekend Yoga: Extended Side Angle Pose
Published: 04/07/2013

Yoga facilitates the joining or uniting of the mind, body and spirit to enrich the quality of life and to enhance health. The Extended Side Angle Pose exemplifies this unity, creating a stretch along the topof the body, from the back heel through the raised arm. The benefits of this pose include:

  • Strengthening and stretching of the legs, knees and ankles
  • Stretching of the groin, spine, waist, chest and lungs, and shoulders
  • Stimulating abdominal organs
  • Increasing stamina

You should use caution while performing this pose if you have high (or low) blood pressure or insomnia. Learn more about the Extended Side Angle Pose, including a picture of the proper way to complete the pose.
