Yoga Positions - Astavakrasana

This yoga position is named after an ancient sage. In a seated position place one leg diagonally out and bend the knee. (In this case the right leg.) Place the other foot over it and place the right hand through the gap between the legs.

Align the hands by placing the middle fingers forward then bend the elbows slightly out.

Lean the chest forward and straighten the legs diagonally out keeping them hooked. The leg on top remains slightly bent but the one underneath straightens nicely.
