Half Locust Pose Legs Raised
Today’s tip is half locust pose with feet raised. One of the main problems within this pose is that you end up pinching in on the lower back here. And that’s because of the work of the feet. You can see the little toes are coming together, whereas we press out through the toes and take the little toes towards the floor, this helps broaden across the lower back.
Another problem is if you’ve got tight lower backs or back issues, you can also take the feet to hip width, but you’ve got to continue to spread from the big toe to the little toe, so that the inner thighs roll up towards the ceiling to keep the space in here, so you’re not pinching the lower back.
