Yoadict – leg movements

In installment 2 of my Spanish-English Yoga dictionary, I am going to look at the legs. Check back to installment 1 for arm movements.

  • Feet together = piés juntos
  • Feet slightly apart = piés ligeramente separados
  • Bend your knees = doblar ó flexionar las rodillas
  • Lift your heels = levantar los talones
  • Stand on your toes = Ponte de puntillas
  • Stand on one leg = apoyate sobre una pierna
  • Lift your leg = levanta la pierna

That’s it for now. Hope that helps!

Yogadict: arm movements

I am inspired to help out my fellow teachers with a simple English->Spanish yoga dictionary. Here in Altea, many languages are spoken and it helps if you can communicate in more than one. So, here goes with installment 1:

  • Arms in a “T” = brazos en cruz (this is “arms in a cross”)
  • Cross your arms = cruzar los brazos
  • Raise your arms = levantar brazos
  • Arms behind your head = brazos detrás de la cabeza
  • Hands on your hips = manos en “jarra” (this is “arms like a jar”)
  • Turn your palms up = palmas arriba
  • Bend your arms = doblar los codos (bend the elbows)

There is plenty more, but that will get you started. Namaste.
