Side-Stretching

This sequence is a great one for stretching the sides of the body and opening up the hips. It's one of my all-time favourites.

It involves some slightly more advanced poses—including Reverse Warrior, Triangle and Extended Side Angle so drop me a message if you need any help with your alignment.
