Day 26 of 30 Days Yoga With Matr3Moni Challenge: Lizard Posture

Do you want to work on your flexibility and strength at the same time without going from one thing to the next??? Great!!! Lizard posture is here to get you all the way right. Although this is a beginners posture, don’t jump in without paying attention to your body.

Benefits:

  • Help alleviate low back pain or sciatica, release tension
  • Improves hip flexibility
  • Strengthens the leg muscles

How to achieve Lizard Poature:

  1. Begin on all fours making sure your feet are hip-width apart and your chin stays tucked under your chest.
  2. Step your left foot forward to the outside edge of your left hand, coming into a lunge position.
  3. Lower your right knee to the ground and press into your hips, keeping your arms and back straight.
  4. Slowly lower onto your forearms, keeping your back flat and your head in line with your spine.
  5. Slowly lower onto your forearms, keeping your back flat and your head in line with your spine.

Tips:

  • Don’t lower to your forearms if it seems like too much. That’s something you can work towards
  • If your hips are tight place a block under each elbow
  • Your back knee can be raised off the ground or it can stay on the mat
  • keep your back foots toes grounded into the mat
