Posture of the Month...

Side Arm Balance (Vasisthasana)
  • Basically balancing on your right hand and right knee with your left foot squeezing the floor (optional: straighten right leg also)
  • Try and have a straight line from your right hand to right knee to right foot to left foot
  • Press firmly through your right arm creating space in right shoulder joint (so there is not too much compression in shoulder joint)
  • Extend left arm straight up towards the sky above right arm to your own comfortable degree
  • Allow left arm, shoulder and chest to open while always keeping your chest lengthening away from your left foot squeezing the floor
  • Option: use towel as padding for knee, if necessary
