9 LIZARD LUNGE

OPENS THE HIP FLEX­ORS, HAM­STRINGS, GROIN, CHEST, SHOUL­DER AND BACK

Shape (Malaysia) - - HEALTH HIGHLIGHT -

A From a down­ward dog, in­hale and lift the right foot into the air, bring the foot to the out­side of the right hand on the ex­hale. Drop your fore­arms down on to the mat in front of you. Use a yoga block to prop your­self up if nec­es­sary, and al­low the right hip to open to the side. Curl your left toes to raise the back leg off the mat. B If this is too chal­leng­ing, re­main with your knee on the ground. You can re­main here for about 60 sec­onds be­fore re­turn­ing to down­ward dog, and re­peat­ing the lunge on the other side.
