Day 7 - Low Lunge
Pose: Low Lunge - Anjaneyasana
Alignment: Starting from standing, on your exhale gently fold forward with both knees bent bringing the hands to the ground. Soften through the upper body with every breath out. Step as far back as you can with the right foot and bring the left knee down. Align the right knee and ankle, the sole of the foot is flat and supportive. Inhale lift the heart, exhaleto soften the pelvis down towards the floor. Finding a little traction by guiding both feet towards each other (this is a direction of awareness, you don't actually move the feet!) Hands can rest on the front knee, hands to heart, or if you feel comfortable reach the arms high! Take 5 - 10 deep breaths and feel a release through the hips. Just delicious! Don't forget to do both sides!
Benefits: Stretches the hip flexors, thigh, inner thigh, groin, hamstrings, ankles, abdominals. Strengthens the legs, feet and ankles. Wonderful for improving balance and core awareness.
