From the tips of your toes to the tips of your fingers, find beautiful length in your side body while improving your breath and posture. Low Lunge twists help to detox your body and release tension in your back.
Low Lunge Pose strengthens and stretches your legs, knees and ankles, stimulates your abdominal organs (constipation, be gone!), energizes your body and can help with lower back pain. Low Lunge Pose also works to stretch the hip flexors, thus improving your posture.
Begin by starting in a Downward Facing Dog (stacking your shoulders in line with your wrists, keeping your hips in line with your knees, tucking your toes, lifting your knees off the floor and taking your hips into the air).
Be sure to square off your hips and keep them facing forward. If you have any knee-related issues, try placing a towel or rolling your mat underneath your knee. Ready for a little challenge? Lift your hands high up over your head and reach for the sky. This move expands the rib cage and improves your breathing.
If the stretch feels too intense on your hip flexors, try tucking your toes under to release any tension in your extended leg.
