Revolved Arm Pose – Parivrtta Bhujasana
Step by Step Instructions:
Begin by standing in tadasana.
Inhale and begin to slowly arc your right arm up above your head.
Exhale. Circle your right arm back and down to your side.
Repeat the rotation two more times, allowing your breath to initiate the movement.
As your arm circles up and around, ensure that your frontal hipbones stay parallel to your front.
Keep following your fingertips with your eyes. In yoga we call this your drishti;
the focal point where one’s gaze lies consciously to prevent distractions.
Pause here in tadasana for a moment.
Now arc your left arm up above your head on your inhalation and circle
your left arm back down to your side on your exhalation.
Again, repeat two more times leading with your fingertips.
When you are finished your last rotation come back to standing in tadasana.
