This posture comes at the end of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga and it involves both control of the core of the body as well as a test of hamstring and hip flexibility. When doing this posture it is important to stabilize the pelvis and let the movements come naturally. Rotate the hip joint externally to bring the leg to the side while using the core strength to lift the body when the leg is in parallel position.
