Twists: Get Them Straight

Pun strongly intended. A visual index of Forrest Yoga Twisting Lunges and Twisting Warriors. Read on!

There’s a pattern for the legs and a pattern for the arms.

Legs

The top row of poses are all named “Lunge.” You’ll see that they are all built on a foundation of lunge legs, specifically a short lunge with hips aligned above the back knee.

The bottom row of poses are all named “Warrior.” You’ll see that they are all build on a foundation of Warrior I legs. The “warrior” poses can all be modified with the variation of lifting the back heel. Add the word “variation” to the end of the pose name in that case.

Arms

If it’s named “easy,” bottom hand is on the ground about 15 inches to the inside of front foot, top arm up.

If it’s plain “twisting” with no modifier words, bottom elbow tip comes across front thigh.

If it’s named “extended,” bottom arm crosses to the outside of front thigh and bottom hand is on the ground outside front foot.

If it’s named “interlock,” bottom arm crosses to the outside of front thigh and hands clasp behind the back.

Confused?

No problem. You don’t really need to remember a thing. We’ll see you in class!
