Eka Pada Rajakapotasana
Stretches arms and legs, strengthens upper body.
Begin in Downward Facing Dog.
Step one foot forward, into a low lunge, setting your foot closer to your opposite hand.
Allow your back knee to lower to your mat, as you tip your front knee to open your front hip.
Keep your hands on the floor, and sit up tall – be sure to keep your hips facing forward.
Hold this pose for a couple of breaths.
Step your front leg back, and press into Downward Facing Dog.
Repeat on your opposite side.
This pose also makes for an excellent dragon with a long tail!
