Crescent Pose

Target area(s): legs, back, arms and shoulders

How to perform the crescent pose:

Start with your right leg about 3-4 feet in front of your left leg, in a high lunge starting position.  Square your hips – make sure they follow your right leg’s direction.

Lower your right knee no more than 90 degrees.  Straighten your arms up next to your ears.

Don’t put all of your weight on your front foot, make sure to evenly distribute between your front and back feet.

A different angle for you with the left leg forward:

Hold the pose for 60 second.  After that hold the pose for 60 seconds but with your left left forward.  Repeat until you’ve done this 5 times on each leg.
