A few weeks ago I taught The Hang Glider as part of my Summer Solstice class and it was fun- and challenging! This is a totally made up pose consisting of Warrior 3 and Cobra. To be clear- I’ve never hang glideded, nor do I intend to, so this is just my interpretation of the pose! 🙂 I would make sure to include Trikonasana, Warrior 3 and Cobra or Dhanurasana. Any prone backbend will help to create the action of lifting the torso up and away from the floor.

To transition into The Parachute, reach the arms overhead , lift the torso higher and bend the back knee- similar to Natajarasana. Try to create the feeling of a big dome in the chest as if you were slowly gliding through air! Check out the video below for more details! Have fun with it and let me know how it goes!
