Bound Side Angle


Bound Side Angle Baddha Parsvokanasana

This pose is a variation of Extended Side Angle. The most important alignment points are the length of the spine, and the openness of the top shoulder. Do not sacrifice these elements to "get the bind". Start with "half a wrap" and see how that feels. If you can't breathe easily, or you experience discomfort in the wrapped shoulder, it's too soon!
