Dru Yoga - Utthita Parsvakonasana: the Bhima posture

The Bhima is a great side stretch, as well as an excellent toner for the quads, glutes and abdominals.

 

This posture is an extension of the lateral triangle: Utthita Trikonasana and it gives you a long side stretch, opening the intercostal muscles, the lungs and therefore the heart. It provides a much needed alignment between the crown of the head and the lower energy centres.

 

RAAAAHHHHH!
