Poses We Love - Half Bound Lotus Forward Fold

Melina Meza

Half Bound Lotus Forward Fold (Ardha Baddha Padmottonasana) can be challenging if the hips are tight, so hip-opening exercises should be included in warm-ups. Modifications are designed to take pressure off of the knee by giving more space to the pose, letting the ankle drop lower than the hip crease, and lessening the forward bend by supporting the upper body.
