Where do you feel this one?
Start on your back, knees bent, head supported if you like or if it helps to ease your back and ribs down.

Pick up your butt and shift it a few inches to the left. Shift your feet a few inches to match up.

Place your left ankle over your right knee and then roll your legs and pelvis to the right.

Keep your left knee pointing towards the ceiling, rather than pulling it in towards the floor.

The goal is to have your neck and shoulders relaxed, your left shoulder blade easy on the floor.
Check in with your hips… Are your hip flexors and inner thighs pretty happy? Awesome!

To achieve all of that, you might want to pop a block or cushion under your left foot and right knee!

Once you’re in the position it’s time to explore.

Does this feel like a twist of your torso? If your rib cage and shoulder blades are nice bad heavy, your getting an amazing twist for your core!

Does this feel like a stretch for your left hip? Yes? Great!

Doesn’t feel like much? That’s ok too. Sometimes it’s really good for your system to just settle into an unusual position and hang out there without any drama!

Try both sides… It might not be the same from side to side…
Let me know what you think!
