Crescent Lunge (Low Lunge)
Begin in Mountain Pose, standing at the top of the mat. Exhale the hands down to the mat, and step the left foot back 3-4 feet to lower the left knee. Inhale and lift the chest up, pulling the belly in. Drop the shoulders and gather the hands at heart center or extended upward.
Take a few breaths here, focusing on the stretch in the left thigh and the right hamstring. Continue lifting the heart and engaging the core and pelvic region.
After about 5 full breaths, lower the hands to frame the front foot and step the back foot up to meet the right foot. Inhale to rise up and exhale back to Mountain Pose.
