The Gate Pose (Parighasana)

In Sanskrit, parigha means door or gate, and asana means seat or posture. Thus the name Parighasana (Gate Pose), and once in this pose, the stretched arm resembles a lock or latch. Parighasana could be a moving yoga pose that focuses on a ‘lateral’ stretch of the upper body.

Gate Pose

Beginner’s Tip

Beginners won't be able to straight leg flat onto the ground. There are 2 options: either raise the ball of the foot on a sandbag or thickly collapsible blanket, or work against a wall, with the ball of the foot ironed against the wall.

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.

Tip To Do -

1 - Come into your right leg in a kneeling position with your thighs perpendicular to the ground and your hips over the knees. Place a blanket below your knees if they're sensitive.
2 - Maintain a kneeling position and articulatio plana in line with your right hip by keeping your right leg straight as you extend its intent on the right side. Turn your right toes forward so your right foot is parallel to the side of the mat.
3 - Inhale and reach your left arm up next to your left ear. Exhale and lean your body parts to the right. Stretch your left arm over your head. Let your right arm come back down and rest on your right leg.
4 - Bring your gaze up below your extended left arm. For many breaths, extend your spine on your inhales and deepen the facet stretch on your exhales.
5 - Bring your body parts upright and come back to your right knee next to the left one. On your other side, repeat the stretch.
