Watch out for
Avoid any tingling sensations in the arms. If this occurs, adjust the arm position, elevate them with a bolster or try holding onto your elbows instead of your wrists.
You can adjust the position of your pelvis to target sensations in the front side body or the back side body.
Use a strap to go deeper in the pose: Make a small loop and place it around your left ankle. Hold the other side of the strap, as low as possible, with your left hand. Use your right arm to put tension on the strap (a bit like a bow and an arrow). Doing this can intensify the side bend, while still keeping the muscles relaxed.
