Parshvottanasana Feet Apart Side Angle Pose

In parshvottanasana (pronounced PARSH-voh-tah-NAH-sah-nah), you will tone your abdomen; straighten drooping shoulders; and make your hips, spine, and wrists more flexible.

How Tone Your Back Home

1. Stand with your feet three to four feet apart. Turn one foot out and face that foot.

2. Bring your hands into the namaste or prayer position, but behind your back with your fingers pointing up. If this is too difficult, simply clasp your hands behind your back, or keep your hands at your sides as you move forward.

3. Inhale, lengthen the spine upward, then exhale, bringing your head toward your front knee.

4. Imagine your chest, rather than your head, moving toward your knees to help lengthen the spine and prevent rounding of the back. Keep breathing throughout this pose.
