Stand on one leg, lift the other, wrap this arm under that leg, bend a knee, grab that foot, lengthen out, knee up, shoulder back — welcome to Super Soldier, the pose most of us have only seen on Instagram, many of us have never heard of before, Very few actually know how to do it.

The bendy pose was something I never considered doing, thinking it would be another crazy IG variation. That is until a random teacher in a class that I happened to attend showed us how to do it. While mine didn’t look as beautiful as the photos I had seen, I was still surprised that I found myself in the bendy pose.

Would you like to try it?

Warm up by doing sun salutations and stretches for the hips and shoulders, as well as thigh and calf stretches. This pose is for the flexible!
