Low lunge pose, known as Anjaneyasana in Sanskrit, strengthens the hips, legs, ankles, and feet for a powerful lower body. As a balancing pose, it builds solid balance and better agility. As a heart opener, it stretches the arms, neck, and chest to release stress through the entire body.

Benefits

Low lunge is a little bit of everything. It’s both a powerful strengthener (through the quads, glutes, and pecs) and a powerful lengthener (through the hamstrings and triceps). It’s also a balancing pose that builds mental concentration and body awareness and a chest opener that opens the upper body and releases stress.

This gentle backbend also relieves sciatica pain in the lower back, hip, and outer leg. Stretching through the hamstrings and lower back is therapeutic for the nerves that cause sciatica pain.

Contraindications

  • Those with knee or ankle injuries should not attempt low lunge.
