I’ve been sequencing this pose a lot lately into my classes and personal practice. It’s simple yet allows variations for all levels from the beginner to the experienced practitioner.
In Sanskrit, this pose is called "Ardha Purvottanasana" (ARD-uh PUR-voh-tun-AHS-uh-nuh), which means "Half Intense East Stretch." This comes from five words:
* "Ardha" — meaning "half"
* “Purva” — meaning “east"
* “Ut” — meaning “intense”
* “Tan” — meaning “to stretch”
* “Asana” — meaning “pose”
Enjoy & incorporate it into your personal practice!
