Low Lunge Alignment

Low Lunge is a great pose to stretch out tight quadriceps, hamstrings, groin, and hips, and encourages a full range of motion in the lower body. Which makes this pose the perfect stretch for athletes, gym goers, or even those who sit at desks all day. Below we will go over a few tips to make sure you are getting the most out of your low lunge stretch.

Once in the low lunge position, shift your weight so that your knee is stacked over the ankle and hips are pushing forward. Then walk your hands back so that your shoulders are in line with your hips and core is engaged. If you have trouble reaching the floor for balance in this position, simply use blocks under each hand.
