This is a fun and challenging yoga pose that requires you to be grounded, balance on one leg, open your shoulders enough to get a deep clasp, AND fully stretch your hamstring. That's a lot! Don't worry, it takes most folks a long time to be able to perform the completed pose, and while they are working towards it, there is plenty to learn and practice. Check out this video for step-by-step instructions on how to get into this pose, along with ideas for how to modify it while you are working to become more flexible.
And, oh yes, there's surf in the background!
