My intention for YoMo is to practice Upavistha Konasana (wide angle) and Supta Virasana (reclining hero) every day, because those two are my bugaboos.
Yesterday I was exhausted from a very long walk through the wooded ravines around our house, so I did a fairly restorative practice with focus on those two poses. I’ve been thinking about what other poses will help me warm up and make them easier. They both open different parts of the hip.
For Upavistha Konasana, I can do Trikonasana (triangle), which works on my adductors one leg at a time, Prasarita Padottanasana (wide legged forward bend) and Viparita Karani (legs up the wall) with my legs spread wide. The last two work on the adductors both legs at a time.
For Supta Virasana, I can do Ustrasana (camel) against the wall, lunges, Virasana (hero), and Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana on a chair.
