Base partner lies on his back and places feet comfortably on partner’s belly/chest depending on size
of partner. Base partner holds her hands as he slowly straightens his legs and lifts her in the air.
She can then straighten her arms and legs for superman or attempt more challenging variations.
After partner is up in the air she can
carefully move into “Flying” Bow
Pose continuing to hold right hand
of base partner as she reaches her
left hand to clasp her left ankle.
Base partner puts his feet on her
hip flexors and while holding her
hands he straightens legs forcing
her to go into more of a diving
position. She then puts the soles
of her feet together for “Flying
Butterfly” as base partner moves
her around at his comfort level.
Base partner comes into plank pose with hands directly under shoulders and arms
straight, like he is about to do a push-up. His eye gaze is down just beyond his hands
and he lengthens his body from crown to feet grounding his toes to floor by engaging
legs, glutes and core firmly. Smaller partner holds onto his ankles and then depending
on her height, places toes onto his shoulders or back. It is important for her to also hold
arms straight and engage core and legs with strength to be sturdy in the pose.
