Kurmasana | Tortoise Pose

Tortoise pose provides deep opening of the hips and chest.





How to:

  • Begin in downward dog.

  • Jump the feet around the arms bringing the legs high up on the shoulders.

  • Lower to the floor, and stretch the hands backward. Place the palms flat on the floor. Lift the heels and draw the legs in toward the shoulders.

  • Hold for 5 breaths.


Challenge

  • Come into Supta Kurmasana by crossing the feet behind the head and binding the hands behind the back.

  • Exit the pose the way you came in by lifting up. Pull the legs back into Bakasana and hop back into Chaturanga.
