Sugarcane Pose, it's a variation of Half Moon, in Sanskrit Ardha Chandrasana-- it is a standing balancing pose, an intense side stretch, a hip flexor and groin releasing posture. Practice pose on both sides, holding the pose for several inhalations and exhalations. A block or wall should be used for support or a modification that offers an easier or beginner friendly version of the pose.

Extended-Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose is a standing balancing pose that lengthens and stretches both the standing / grounded leg as well as the extended leg. It can be practiced next to a wall or propped over a chair. Breathe deeply, focus on lengthening, holding the pose for as long as possible--then switch sides.
