Yoga Basics | Low Lunge

Low Lunge | Anjaneyasana

Anjaneyasana is Sanskrit (yogi language) for Low Lunge. This is one of the most basic poses to learn and I’ve included two variations. The first one is for beginners or people struggling with balance. Keeping your hands on the ground and pulling your chest through helps maintain the equilibrium. The second variation is a little more advanced, this posture offers a nice stretch along the abdominals while bringing your hands up and arching your back.
