  • Try these modifications and props to find safe alignment in Marichyasana I. . . If your back is tight... Try an open version of the pose by sitting on a block on the back of a chair seat. Place your left heel on the edge of your seat, and take your right leg out to the side. Place your left elbow against your left knee with your forearm perpendicular to the floor. Reach for the backrest of the chair with your right hand. On an inhalation, press your buttocks downward into the block, and lift the sides of your torso. On an exhalation, turn your chest toward your extended leg. Hold for 6 breaths. Switch sides. . .

  • Try these modifications and props to find safe alignment in Marichyasana I. . . If you struggle to bend forward with an extended spine... Try an open-twist version. From Dandasana, bend your left leg, and bring your left foot close to your left buttock. Reach your left arm forward on the inside of your left leg. Internally rotate your left arm and reach around your left leg. Then, swing your right hand behind your back, and catch your right wrist with your left hand. On an inhalation, elongate your trunk. On the exhalation, turn to the right. For 6 breaths, deepen the twist on each exhalation; then hold the pose for another 6 breaths. Repeat on the other side . .

  • Try these modifications and props to find safe alignment in Marichyasana I. . . If your hamstrings or glutes are tight... Try sitting on 1–2 folded blankets and wrapping a belt around the foot of your extended leg. This allows for better hip mobility and a gentler stretch of your hamstrings. Sit on the edge of the blankets, and as you reach forward over your extended leg, take a looped belt around your foot. The loop should be wide enough that you can extend both arms. Press your foot into the belt, and pull back with your hands to help lift the sides of your torso. Hold for 6 breaths. Repeat on the other side. . .

  • HOW-TO: Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose) . . Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat. Lift your hips, and slide a block beneath your lower back where your sacrum meets your upper glutes. Choose a block setting depending on how intense you want the stretch, but remember that the purpose of this posture is to restore and cool down your body. Lower onto the block, and begin to relax. You should be able to balance here without effort, so if you feel like you’re holding yourself up with your legs or falling off the block, make small adjustments until you hit that sweet spot. Close your eyes, and stay here for 8–12 breaths. Then finish with 5 minutes of Savasana (Corpse Pose). Click the link in bio for more inversion-prep poses. . .
