From Supported Triangle position, slightly bend your right knee, transferring your weight onto your right foot and hand. Keeping your left hip turned out, inhale and reach your left arm overhead as you slowly lift your left leg to hip height [shown], then exhale. Hold for 3 to 5 full breaths. Inhale, then exhale, bending your right knee as you lower your left foot and briefly return to Supported Triangle pose. Stand up, move chair to the other side and repeat Supported Triangle, then Half Moon poses.
Benefits: Strengthens legs, hips and abdominals and stretches inner thighs.
•Breathe deeply and slowly through your nose during the poses.
•Focus on elongating your spine and contracting your abdominals as a way to take deeper breaths.
•If you experience discomfort, stop immediately. You should feel a gentle stretch but no strain.
