Christy Nones McKenzie
Start standing. Step your feet about 4 feet apart. Raise your arms parallel to the floor and reach them out to the sides, shoulders away from the ears, palms facing down. Turn the front foot slightly to the side and the back foot slightly out to about 90 degrees. Align the foot of the back heel with the front heel. Bend the front leg to 90 degrees, bringing the knee over the ankle, coming into Warrior 2 pose. Continue to bend through the front knee, bringing the thigh parallel to the floor; at the same time, flip the front hand’s palm up towards the ceiling and reach towards the wall behind you, stretching the side ribs away from the hip point. Hold for 3 steady breaths , continuing to stretch and reach the fingertips back. Switch sides and repeat.
Good for leg, ankle, groin, chest and shoulder stretch.
