Yesterday we walked you through the Plank Pose. Today we are going to cover the High Lunge Pose.
The high lunge pose is a great pose to build strength in your lower body. This pose will open your hips and chest, stretches your groin, and will lengthen and strengthen your spine. Other benefits include helping with indigestion, constipation, and sciatica.
If you are suffering from a serious knee injury or neck problems, you should perform modifications to this pose. To perform this pose, do the following steps:
- Step your right foot forward

- Tighten your lower belly and push your tailbone to the floor
- Bend your right knee to 90 degrees and keep your left heel off the ground
