Half Frog Sphinx

This pose is just like Sphinx, except we begin by bending one knee up and out to our side at a time and then moving our upper body into our sphinx pose.

 

If lifting up onto your elbows is too much here you can simply lift your head slightly and let your forehead rest on the back of your hands.

Physical Benefits:

  • Compresses lower back

  • Stretches front body

  • Stretches inner leg

Contraindications: Lower back injury. Shoulder issues. Knee issues.

Props: You may like to use a bolster under your chest for support or keep your head resting on your hands to keep your chest lower here.
