09 Dec Revolved Lunge (Parivrtta Parsvakonasana)
Another twist today and this is definitely one that’s accessible for everyone. There are a few really important areas that you should focus your alignment on. *make sure the lunging knee sits over the second toe- because of tightness we usually have in the hips the knee will pull over towards the little toe or even hang out further. Be sure to glance down and keep the knee aligned. * stack the shoulders on top of each other. Think of moving from the centre of tour body, the heart and twist your upper body so that the shoulder is sat below and above the heart. *hips-heart-head! I always use this to help students focus on keeping their spine and therefore chakras in alignment
*keep your abdominal lock in place and curl the tailbone under to activate the strength in your abs and core.
All revolved postures are fantastic at stimulating digestion and realising stress in the hips and torso.
Beginners often have difficulty maintaining their balance in this pose, especially with the back heel lifted off the floor. To improve your balance, support your heel, lower the back knee down to the mat.
