Lauren breaks down Pyramid Pose (Parsvottanasana) Level 1/2 Pyramid Pose could be quite an intense posture.  It will deeply stretch your hamstrings (back of legs), while challenging your balance and will.  There are several variations with the arms so choose the one that works best for you.

*Modifications:  Bend your front knee if needed or grab a couple of blocks.  You can place your hands in prayer or clasp opposite elbows.  If your shoulder are too tight than you can try an arm position that feels best to you.  It's always best to listen to your body and try different positions to see which one best suits you.  You could try reaching your arms straight back like wings with the palms facing up or if this is too much just rest your hands on blocks or on your front shin.
