In the tenth day of our 30 day yoga challenge, Sarah Malcolm teaches the Anjaneyasana – otherwise known as the low lunge pose – brilliant for runners
Welcome to day ten of Healthista’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge, with leading London yoga teacher, Sarah Malcolm (@sarahmalcs), where you learn in detail a different pose or aspect of yoga every day. If you’re just joining us, click here to go to day one and see below for links to the other days in the series.
Anjaneyasana – Low Lunge Pose
The Anjaneyasana is a low lunge pose that will help build strength and endurance in the leg and thigh muscles.
The pose is sometimes included in the Sun Salutation. It increases flexibility in the hips and opens the chest as you stretch your arms in the air.
Sarah demonstrates a twist variation meant to get movement in the spine and find space in the hip flexors.
Check back in tomorrow for the next move in our yoga challenge video series.
Our 30 day yoga challenge
Each day you will be learning a new aspect to the practice, so in a month you will have learned the basic yoga poses in depth and participate in classes or do a proper sequence yourself.
Shockingly to most people, yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy! Our 30 day challenge will give you the skills to become a true yogi.
