Lizard Pose: How-to, Tips, Benefits
How-to: From a low lunge, lower your back knee to the ground then bring your forearms to the ground just inside your front foot. Lift your back knee if easy.
Tips: If your forearms don’t come easily to the ground, its fine to keep your arms straight or slightly bent, and just sink your hips toward the ground.
Benefits: Opens hips.
