march pose: eye of the needle

How to do it:
1. Start lying on your back with your knees bent
2. Lift your right foot off the ground and cross your ankle just above your left knee
3. Flex your foot and reach your right hand through your legs and interlace your hands on the back of your left thigh
4. Keep your right foot flexed to protect your knee. As you pull your left thigh closer, draw your right knee away from you, feeling the stretch on the outer right hip
5. Relax your shoulders

Stay for 30sec to a minute, breathe deeply, release and switch sides
