Pose of the week: Urdhva Prasarita Padasana

Scrapbook_2014-04-15_23.03.14

Ur what??? Known at UPP, leg raises, leg lifts or L shapes.  This is one of my favorite poses for building core strength.  There are so many variations: arms overhead, arms parallel to the legs etc.  This is also a favorite with J girl and J boy who like to be lifted up in the air and pretend they’re soaring like birds. I am currently using this as part of my core strengthening regimen to build core strength for inversions and arm balances.
