Start standing on the knees and step one foot forward into a lunge, bringing the knee over the ankle and keeping the back knee grounded, top of the back foot pressing into the floor. Bring the fingertips to the floor, framing the foot and begin to sink the hips forward and down. Look forward and lift through the chest, making sure not to round the upper back. Keeping the fingertips and front foot where they are, start to draw the hips back and straighten through the front leg, coming onto the heel of the front foot. Tailbone pulls back as the chest reaches forward, keeping the spine long, flat back. Hold lunge and half split for 3 steady breaths each and then switch sides.
Good for hip, thigh, hamstring, calve and hip flexor stretch, balance and coordination.
It required a lot of concentration, for me, to cross my legs in the air with my hands holding the knees and slowly push them straight up . I fell about 10 times ขัดขากลางอากาศเป็นตุ๊กตาล้มลุกคลุกคลานไปหลายรอบ thank you kru @ellesirilak for taking this pic without me knowing lol 🙏😘 #mysore #mysoreashtanga #mysoreashtangabangkok #bangkok #yoga #yogi #yogini #practice #igbkk #igers #igdaily #instadaily #ashtanga - @boho_be- #webstagram

Getting warmed up for a flight… Off to Afghanistan for 4 weeks. Don’t have time to edit, no fancy song in the background, just the table creaking… Last time I was in Kabul was about 2 years ago. This will be an interesting trip. Would love to see if there’s any changes since… - @johndelayoga- #webstagram
this is a great stretch to warm up your body, or even as a cool down routine in the morning or at night. i really love this stretch and i always close my eyes and just let my breath guide my movement. <:
this is a really great pose for days when you feel really stiff or when you feel a little unwell! couple this with some breathing exercises, and you will feel more revitalised <:
