Baby steps to Splits: Hanumanasana

≤15 min. Some poses are like eye candy, and for many of us, hanumanasana (splits) fall in that category. There are many pieces to the pose, and this playshop addresses one of the pieces -- e.g., stretching the quads. For decades I've thought that the trick to this pose is completely about the hamstrings, but over the years of patient practice, it has become obvious that practices to increase hip & quad flexibility are equally important. Getting there takes patience, but with baby steps like we take in this practice, we will get there. Start in virasana, move through crescent lunge, ardha dhanurasana, a variation of bhekasana and ardha ustrasana before coming to the form of hanumanasana! Patience and practice. We will get there!
