05 Nov ANJANEYASANA (lunge)
ANJANEYASANA (lunge) is a standing pose that is grounding and at the same time opens the groins and the chest.
Sarting from ADHO MUKHA SVANASANA (downward facing dog pose) or from all fours, step the right foot forward in between the hands.
Stack the front knee over the ankle and either lower the back knee down (for a low lunge) or keep the back leg engaged with the knee off the floor (for a high lunge). In both variations, keep the back toes tucked under for stability.
Find your balance on an exhale and on the following inhale lift your torso and arms up to the sky. Exhale and let the pelvis guide you into the groin stretch.
Look up at your hands or straight ahead and stay here for 5 breaths.
Lower the hands down on either side of the front foot on an inhale and step back into ADHO MUKHA SVANASANA (downward facing dog pose) or all fours on the following exhale.
Repeat on the other side.
