Lizard Pose, or Utthan Pristhasana, is a stretch that strengthens the groin and inner hamstrings while opening space in the hips.

According to Sarah, Lizard pose is ‘Great for the hips and great for the breath’.

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.
