Parsvottanasana ~ From a high lunge, Warrior I or II, one leg steps backwards to allow for both legs to straighten, keeping the back foot flat on the ground and toes facing forward. Both feet are hip-width distance apart or greater if you feel like you are on a tightrope. You can place your hands on your hips or for more sensation, put hands in reverse prayer behind the back. Lengthen the spine and press forehead toward the knee. If you did the hands-on-hips variation, place hands on mat when you fold forward. This pose stretches the hamstrings and improves balance & circulation in the body.
