Utthita Parsva Hasta Padangusthasana (or Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana variation) - Standing leg to the side stretch: This pose is one of the two in the art print With Basia. It's a standing balance pose with one leg stretched to the side. Another version is stretching the lifted leg forward. If it's difficult to keep the lifted leg straight, we use a strap across that foot. In Iyengar yoga, there's a strong emphasis on learning to straighten the legs, rather than letting them bend in these types of poses. Since this is not possible for many people in its final form, we use a strap to let us approximate the full pose with better alignment and integrity.
Astavakrasana - Eight angle pose: This is the second pose in With Basia, a difficult arm balance. Good core strength and body awareness are both needed to be able to do this pose.
Natarajasana - Lord of the Dance pose: This graceful backbending pose equires great shoulder and upper back flexibility. Also done with both arms reaching back for the foot (er...but I'm glad she didn't do it in this image since I want this page to be family-friendly).
Urdhva dhanurasana - Upward Bow Pose (or Wheel Pose): Another graceful backbending pose. I love the use of the table as a platform to showcase this pose.
Ekapada Raja Kapotasana - One legged King Pigeon Pose: Looks like a pigeon with its chest puffed out. Can also hold the foot with both hands reaching back.
