No seriously, HERE'S where the FUN begins (Prasarita Padattonasana)

Prasarita Padattonasana (Wide leg intense stretch) is a standing forward extension pose that helps us to become comfortable being upside down. 

The arm actions can help us to create the stability needed in the shoulder blades for Sirsasana (headstand) and Sarvangasana (shoulder stand)

Please make sure your head is supported on the floor or a block before attempting the arm movements.

If you don't have stability in the legs yet then go back to the concave version from yesterday

Get a grip! On your outer hip that is...(Trikonasana)

Utthita Trikonasana (Extended Triangle Pose): The front leg

But seriously, how does one get that front leg to support the upper body? 

We can learn the actions through Virabhadrasana II (Warrior II)

Strengthen the outer hip by pulling the outer knee back into the hip socket

Keep that grip and straighten the leg to Trikonasana

Go back to Virabhadrasana II and try again!
