Half-Moon Pose

Nov 17th, 2011
  • From Triangle Pose on the right side, place your left hand on your left hip and bend your right leg.
  • Reach your right hand about 12 inches beyond your right foot on the floor as you lift your left leg off the floor. Keep your left hip stacked above your right hip.
  • Exhale, press your right hand and right heel firmly into the floor, and straighten your right leg, simultaneously lifting the left leg parallel (or a little above parallel) to the floor. Extend actively through the left heel to keep the raised leg strong.
  • When you have your balance, extend the top arm up to the sky.
  • Gaze can be out, up, or down.
  • Switch sides.
