Gate Pose

 

Extend your right leg out to the side, making sure to keep the knee and ankle in line with your right hip.

 

As you take your next inhale, reach the left arm up and extend it over, stretching deeply through the side waist.

 

Allow your right arm come down and rest gently on your right leg.

 

Stay in the pose for 10-15 deep breaths, and then repeat the pose on the opposite side.

 

**Yogi's Tip: Place a blanket under your knees for extra support.
