D F 0 R W /\ R J B f:I \J D P 0 S E COMPARE U PAVISTHA KONASANA WITH BADDHA KONASANA AND PASCHIMOTTANASANA. Look at the similarities and differences that make each pose unique in form and function. For example, Baddha Konasana flexes, abducts, and externally rotates the hips. Although Upavistha Konasana is similar in this respect, the knees extend and the trunk flexes for­ ward as in Paschimottanasana. Note that when the hips are fully flexing, as in Upavistha Konasana, the prime movers of this action are in a state of active insufficiency; that is, the contractile elements of the psoas and its synergists cannot generate significant increased force to deepen the pose.

Accordingly, prepare for the pose by stretching the tensor fascia lata and gluteus medius to lengthen their internal rotation components.
