Standing Split - Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana

Standing Split - Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana

Yoga Pose Steps

1 - Get into Warrior Pose.

2 - Raise left arm while extending right leg. Twist torso to right as you exhale and lift left leg into air.

3 - Now slowly lean forward and position torso on right thigh and rest hands on floor to bear the weight of your torso. Slowly shift weight onto right leg while straightening left leg over your head.

4 - It is important to rotate leg and hip joint correctly while doing this pose. You have to ensure that pelvis remains parallel to floor though it might want to tilt to left to balance the weight.

5 - Both legs and especially the knees need to remain straight. You need to pay special attention to keeping those legs straight. Both kneecaps should face straight ahead. You have to keep the airborne leg straight while also standing straight.

6 - As you get flexible, you will be able to grasp the leg standing on floor as the other leg ascends. The leg will ascend as the torso descends.

7 - Stay in this position for at least 30 seconds and slowly extend to a minute. Slowly exhale as you come back to the starting position. Repeat the steps with the other leg.
