Let's Do This Pose

  • Sit on the floor with your legs in front of you.

  • Bend your knees

  • Slide your right foot under your left leg and bring it next to, but not under, your left hip.

  • Cross your left leg over the right and place your left foot flat on the floor.

  • Place your left hand on the floor behind you.

  • Select the YogaSphere™ that works best with your flexibility and place in your right hand

  • Inhale and lift your right hand towards the ceiling, lengthen the spine

  • As you exhale, maintain the length in your spine and slowly twist your torso towards the left and lower your right elbow to the outside of your left knee bringing your armpit against your knee.

  • Press your elbow against your knee and use your left hand to deepen into the twist.

  • With the YogaSphere™ in your right hand, bring your hand down and pivot your arm at the shoulder.

  • Slide your hand and YogaSphere™ though the hole created between your legs.

  • Reach behind your back with your left hand and take ahold of the end of the YogaSphere™

  • Using the tension created by the YogaSphere™ bind, lift your chest up and straighten your spine.

  • With each inhale find length, and with each exhale find some depth in your twist.

  • Ensure the shoulders remain down and away from the ears at all time in the pose.

  • ​Repeat on other side.
