Lizard Pose, or Utthan Pristhasana! A dynamic stretch for your hip flexors, spine, chest, shoulders, psoas, legs.

Here’s how you do it: Start at downward facing dog, step the right foot forward into a low lunge. Drop the left knee, drop the left forearm down to the ground, flex both feet. Bend the left knee in towards the tailbone, for a deeper stretch use your right hand to bring your left foot in closer to the tailbone. Simultaneously opening up your right side body and chest towards the sky. Keep the right foot flexed and for an even deeper stretch into your psoas and groin muscles, roll the right foot out onto the outer edge of the foot. Take 3 to 5 slow breaths here, then switch sides.

xx love & light!
