Extended Side Angle Pose (Utthita Parsvokonasana)

Illustrated yoga poses of women performing the Extended Side Angle Pose

Extended Side Angle Pose is a beginner, standing posture that gives the side of the body a nice stretch, relieving stress and tightness in the back and shoulders. Extended Side Angle is a great posture for those suffering from sciatica and lower back aches. Extended Side Angle Pose also helps to build stability in the legs and open the rib cage up which in return supports breathing. Yogi’s beware, a headache or high and low blood pressure may be a contradiction to Extended Side Angle, remember to breathe!

To do Extended Side Angle Pose, start in a runners lunge, inhale the arms up and to the side while turning the back foot to a 90 degree angle. Now, rest the forearm over the front let on the thigh and stretch the other arm over the head. Maintain stability in the legs and use the breath to go deeper into Extended Side Angle Pose. There are a few variations to Extended Side Angle Pose such as, lifting the arm on the quad up and parallel to the other, or putting that same arm towards the earth with the palm on the ground.
