Advanced Yoga Poses and Positions : Free Online Yoga Instruction : Elephant Trunk Yoga Pose


The next pose if you’re feeling adventurous
at home and you have a couple of yoga blocks or phone books that you can use, you’ll
want to start by placing your yoga blocks or phone books even with your hips. This is
called elephant trunk pose and in a minute you’ll see why. So you place your hands
squarely on your blocks or phone books, and then you’re going to want to take one leg
up as high as you can above the elbow on one arm. So you don’t have to lift your leg
behind your head, just above the elbow as far up toward the shoulder as possible, and
then flexing your feet, pressing against to the blocks, lifting up. This is elephant trunk
pose. If you’re feeling kind of energetic you could always hook the straight leg over
the bent leg and come into side crow. And then to come out, coming back to center and
then coming down. The first stage of elephant trunk. Second stage.
