Yoga Tips for Women: Sage Marichi Pose
This is a difficult pose to get into, but really stretches the entire core.
Sit on the floor with the legs together, straight out in front of you. Bend your left knee and place the foot on the floor, with the heel as close to the left sit bone as possible. Keep the right leg straight and strong. Lengthen your torso forward and place the left shin into the armpit. On an exhalation, reach the forearm around the outside of the leg. With another exhalation, sweep the right arm around behind your back. Grasp the right wrist in the left hand. Exhale and reach your upper body forward. Lower your front torso as closely as possible to the right leg. Stay in position for 30 seconds to a minute. Repeat on the other side for the same length of time.
