Great practice to save and do over and over again....I did feel a little pressure/pain when I put the block under my hip....this went away when removed. What is the purpose? Is it aligning the hips? This was the posture with the leg perpendicular...I enjoyed it but curious about the set up!
Hello Ginger ~ Thanks for experimenting with the suggested pose, this goes to show that one pose does not fit all and that props are not always the solution! The block is typically useful for someone with less range of motion in their hips, low back, and waist. Lifting off the floor might give the body time to adjust the rotation in the waist, to energize the back leg and wake up the core muscles along the spine. I hope this helps and the pose feels even better as you continue to revisit it.
Wow, I"m honored to be part of your morning and evening rituals! I too am grateful for yoga during these difficult times. My next 5-day challenge for the fall season will be out on 9/21 and has some calming practices that might be helpful as we dive deeper into the marathon of 2020. Thanks for writing!
