Gate Pose is a perfect beginner posture. I love that it can be used as a variation to Extended Triangle, Extended Side Angle and Reverse Warrior. It can also has advanced variations, taking the pose into its deepest stretch of the body making it speaking to more advanced or flexible practitioners.
The Sanskrit name for this pose, "Parighasana" (pahr-eee-GAHS-uh-nuh), comes from the word "parigha," which refers to a bar or beam that is used to lock a gate. In the full version of the pose, your body mimics the look of a locked gate. I think it looks like a sailboat.
Enjoy & incorporate it into your personal practice!
