Explain term Lateral rotation (external rotation), in compare with asana movement.

Lateral rotation is rotating away from the midline. An external rotation is when the head of the femur, or thigh bone, moves outwards from our centre line. These are poses we do a lot in a yoga class: warrior 2, triangle pose, extended side angle pose, tree pose, half-moon pose… and of course seated poses such as cross-legged or lotus and any of those leg variations including pigeon pose.
