This is a fun and challenging sequence from Bound Malasana to Standing Big Toe Pose (SBTP) with a half bind! I hope you’ll use this sequence as inspiration to play with it, modify it, and add on to it to make it your own.
There are so many variations that can come from this sequence. For example, if Malasana isn’t ok on the knees, try a half squat. Use a strap for the bind, or hold onto the shin as you rise up. You can keep a hold of the shin through SBTP, or re-position the hand under the thigh. If adding on to this sequence, Eka Pada Galavasana (Flying Pigeon) can follow after the Figure 4 Fold. Or, what if you exited the sequence from SBTP and ended in Malasana like you began? Be inspired to make it your own and let me know how it goes! xo
