Camatkarasana (Wild Thing Pose)

(Ka-mat-ka-ra-sana)

One poetic translation of Camatkarasana means "the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart".

 

Step 1: Start in Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-facing Dog).
 
Step 2: Bring your body weight into your right hand and roll onto the outer edge of your right foot like Vasisthasana (Side Plank Pose).
 
Step 3: On an inhalation, lift your hips with buoyancy. Stay strong in your right hand making a clawing action with the fingers. Keep the head of the right arm bone back.On an exhalation, step your left foot back and place your toes on the floor with your knee partially bent.
 
Step 4: Curl back through your upper back to create a sweeoing action of the shoulder blades into the back of the rib cage. A beautiful chest opener!
 
Step 5: On an inhalation lift your hips higher until you curl more into a backbend with your right foot solid on the ground.
 
Step 6: Keep breathing and curl your head back, extending your left arm from your heart and expressing your power and freedom. Such an empowering expression and a gentle form of arm balancing!
 
Step 7: Hold for 5 to 10 breaths, return to Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-facing Dog).
 
Step 8: Repeat on the other side.
