Throwback Thursday: Utthita Parsvakonasana (Extended Side Angle Pose) On The Plaza

YOGA-513

On July 12, Madison yogis met on The Plaza to feel the breeze and sunshine on their skin while practicing asanas.

The pose pictured above is Utthita Parsvakonasana (oo-TEE-tah parsh-vah-cone-AHS-anna) or Extended Side Angle Pose.

utthita = extended

parsva = side, flank

kona = angle

This pose works wonders as it strengthens the legs, knees and ankles and it provides a deep stretch in the spine, waist, chest and shoulders. It expands the lungs with deep breathing and increases stamina.
