Firelog Pose

 

Kiana Ng Yoga

Agnisthambasana

Firelog pose is a great hip opener that I love to use to facilitate release in the hips!

Alignment Principles

  • Start in a seated position with your knees bent and feet on the ground
  • Take your right shin parallel to the top of your mat with your right knee in line with your right hip
  • Stack left ankle on top of the right knee so that both shins are right on top of each other
  • Flex both feet strongly, there should be no sickling in the ankle
  • Option to stay upward with a long spine or fold forwards

 

Prep. Poses:

  • Sleeping Pigeon
  • Butterfly (Baddha Konasana)
  • Lizard Pose (Utthan Pristhasana)
  • Easy Pose (Sukhasana)
  • Eye of the Needle (Sucirandhrasana)

 

Modifications/Variations:

  • Leave bottom leg straight with the top ankle resting just above the knee of the straight leg
  • If the top knee is lifted, place a block in between the top knee and bottom ankle for support
