Kneeling Pyramid Pose
Kneeling Pyramid pose (also called Half Pyramid) is one of my favorite hamstring releases.
Starting in Table Pose, step your right foot up between your hands, or blocks.
Pad the left knee or fold your mat to cushion the knee if needed.
Lengthen the spine and fold over the right leg.
Hold for 3-4 breaths.
For a deeper sensation, round the spine forward bringing the head towards the knee.
Remove blocks or lower them.
DEEPEN THE POSE
- Press the heel into the mat and pull the toes toward your face
- Draw the right hip crease away from your toes
- Lengthens hamstrings, calves and ankles
- Stretches the spine
- Stimulates abdominal organs and improves digestion
- Improves balance
- Calms the mind
