DAY 5 - Wide leg forward fold #wildlove30days

DAY 5 of the #Wildlove30days yoga challenge 🌿

Moving into the realms of hip flexibility, leg strength and balance, this is a posture that takes time and not only builds strength and flexibility but helps us connect to patience and acceptance. Each day our bodies (and minds!) will fluctuate and its important to honour the postures we find the most difficult, for me this posture was a pose that I found so incredibly hard and difficult, with time, patience and kindness my body has allowed me to create space.

Wide Legged Forward Fold - Prasarita Padottanasana

1. Start from a standing pose and allow the feet to part, 3 quarters length of the mat. Heels guide outwards and toes in, offering internal rotation for the thigh bones. This can vary for every one so find a comfortable opening for the hips as you pivot forwards.
