Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana
Geometry: The standing leg and torso are in Uttanasana with one leg extended up towards the ceiling.
Primary Actions: Lift up through the inner line of the leg as you press down from the outer hip to the outer edge of the foot and draw the outer hip in to the body. Lengthen the outer right hip down to lengthen both sides of the body as you extend your chest down towards the floor and in towards the standing leg. Use the right hand to pull you down and in toward the left leg as you extend the chest down and reach the right leg up towards the ceiling.
Practice Virabhadrasana III with the hands on blocks. Bring the torso closer to the standing leg as you lower the blocks.
