I’ve been doing Parighasana (gate-latch) as I move in my sequence from standing to seated asanas. ¬†It’s another one of those huge side stretches like Parsvakonasa (extended side angle), which are so energizing in the morning. ¬†Because I have limited mobility in my hands, it feels great to do that big huge exaggerated stretch.

This asana is good for those hard-as-bone adductor muscles in the inner thigh.

It’s considered a standing pose, even though you are on your knees.
