Body/Mind Perspective: Lunge Pose

Posted on December 13, 2010 by


Next Sequence in Sun Salutation from Plank Pose is Lunge Pose:

1)  Exhale and step your right foot forward between your hands, aligning the right knee over the heel. Then lower your left knee to the floor and, keeping the right knee fixed in place, slide the left back until you feel a comfortable stretch in the left front thigh and groin. 
2)  Squeeze your shoulder blades together and put them in your back pocket.  Bring your head in line with your spine and lengthen your neck.  Take 2 full deep breaths.
3)  Inhale and come back into Plank Pose.  Exhale and step your left foot forward and repeat on the other side.  Take 2 full deep breaths.

Lunge Pose stretches your groin and thigh.
