One of my favorites; gives me a great mid-back and shoulder stretch. I do it staying in the easy pose. No lifting of the leg for me!
|STEP 1: Kneel and sit on your feet with your heels pointing outward.|
|STEP 2: Then sit to the right of your feet, as illustrated.|
|STEP 3: Lift your left leg over your right, placing the foot against the outside of the right knee. Bring your right heel in close to your buttocks. Keep the spine erect.|
|STEP 4: Stretch your arms out to the sides at shoulder level, and twist around to the left.|
|STEP 5: Now bring the right arm down on the outside of the left knee and hold your left foot with your right hand, placing your left hand on the floor behind you. As you exhale, twist as far as possible to the left. Look over the left shoulder.|
