Unusual props - Reclined twist

If you struggle to keep both shoulders grounded in a reclined twist, working with a partner may help. Having a partner to help you may also mean you can move deeper into the twist.  
To come into the pose, lie with your knees bent, your arms outstretched. Have your partner stand an arms length away, holding onto something so that they will not fall when you pull on their ankle.  Hold the back of your partner's ankle. Inhale and as you exhale release your knees to the side away from your partner. Hold as long as it feels good. Inhale to bring your knees and head back to centre. Have your partner move to the other side and repeat second side.
