Find your balance and core strength in this hip and heart opening pose. Yoga Rock Star will help to improve your focus, and by practicing this pose you'll develop a rock solid body.
Yoga Rock Star not only stretches your chest, shoulders, and throat but also builds strength in your arms, shoulders and upper back. Its invigorating effect can also relieve stress, fatigue, headaches, back pain – even mild depression!
Begin by starting in a Downward Facing Dog (stacking your shoulders in line with your wrists, keeping your hips in line with your knees, tucking your toes, lifting your knees off the floor and taking your hips into the air).
If you’re a beginner and are unable to hold this pose for very long (don’t worry, it happens to all of us!), simply release your right knee to your mat and lengthen your left leg, which provides extra support.
Feel free to experiment with different expressions of this pose such as stepping your foot closer to the front of your mat for a deeper stretch or placing your lifted hand over your heart.
