Utthita Parsvakonasana (Extended Sides Angle Pose)

It’s a standing asana that gives a good stretch for thighs, hips, legs and knee.
It also develops good stamina and balance.

Start with Tadasana (stand with hands stretched downwards) and take a few breaths to relax.
Then stretch your feet – 3 to 4 feet apart with right foot slightly forward.

Rest your right forearm on the right thigh.

Inhale and extend your left arm up and stretch as far as possible.
And at the same time square your shoulders.
Hold for 3/5 counts and feel the stretch.

Repeat on the other side as well.

Gives a great stretch for the groin area, spine and waist and helps solve problems therein.
