This is what we call “Half Moon” or “Ardha Chandrasana”. Other styles of Yoga have a completely different Pose with the same name!
We used to call this “Pars Ardha Chandrasana” or “ Side Half Moon” when we go over to the side.
Buddha Bose, Bishnu Ghosh’s top student would use this grip, we now call in Barkan Yoga; The Calcutta Grip.
Make sure to straighten both arms by extended the bottom arm to get more into the side body.
⁉️ What grip do you prefer more? Why? Email me???
This is a great Pose to warm-up and get you ready for the rest of the class!
See you in the Mat guys!!
