Affirmation: I Love My Psoas and Legs
Week 4: Strength Poses
Strength and Stretches: Quadriceps, hamstrings, psoas, groin, ankles, abdomen, shoulders and spine.
How To Do It: Begin standing. Transfer weight to left foot and bend right knee, drawing the foot to the booty. Grab the inside of the right foot with the right hand and lift the left hand to the heavens, drawing the bicep to the left ear. Grow the spine long and begin to kick the leg back and up, slowly hinging at the hips. Bring the left arm parallel to the mat with the shoulder directly over the chin. Allow the kick to draw you forward as opposed to immediately dropping the torso down. Focus the eyes on a point directly in front of you to maintain balance. Breath here for 3 full rounds of breath then repeat on the opposite side.
When To Do It: Throughout the day to improve focus and concentration. Incorporate this pose in the middle of your yoga practice after you've warmed up the hips, hamstrings, quads and psoas.
